Business Economics students will occupy financial positions in the business sector. The business economist is the spider in the financial web of the organization. He works at the financial heart, where the money flows in and out and is responsible for monitoring the financial health of the company. He manages the corporate administration and drafts recommendations for the executive board.
An accountant draws up financial reports, investigates corporate finances and accounts and advises the executive board on administrative, organizational and fiscal matters. An accountant is a team-player, he is critical and advises and supports the client. You might describe him as the ‘conscience’ of the organization.
