Students who begin a preparatory year are preparing for the first year of higher education at university. Language courses and undergraduate-level courses that lay a foundation for further learning are many times part of the year.

What is a preparatory year in economic studies? Students take a general group of courses, including languages, to increase the chances of passing entrance exams. In economics, great emphasis is placed on both introductory math courses and language courses. They prepare the student for further study in fields including economics and business economics. Academic writing and expression in speech are also emphasized in some courses. These courses focus on the four major language skills, which are speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Counselors in such programs can provide beneficial information on the exact requirements to pass future entrance exams.

Studying in a preparatory year for business subjects such as economics has great benefits. Added communication skills make entrance exams less stressful and can broaden opportunities in your future career.

Costs are different among schools that offer this degree. Students interested in further economic studies should spend time understanding the full cost for each potential program.

Students who choose to start this program have a number of career options available to them. Such positions might include business economist, government economist, university professor, and positions with international lending organizations or think tanks. Higher-level positions are competitive and generally require more advanced education and experience. Economics students study demand theory and estimation, production and cost theory, analysis of market structure, antitrust policy and capital budgeting, among other subjects.
