I applied in 5 colleges but I got qualified in Marist College only. After taking admission to Marist College I realized how good it is. The college not only imparts quality education but also imparts values. It is one of the better options if an international wants to study a bachelor's in economics.
A solid foundation in both macro and microeconomic theory is included in the curriculum. The working of environmental, financial, public, and international economies are also a part of the course.
