Economics and Business Economics in Nijmegen is characterized by paying attention to other study fields besides economics as well. We call this Economics+. It means that in Nijmegen you do not only delve into numbers and money, but also into social issues such as income inequality, causes of a crisis, the euro and other currencies, international developments and global capital markets, because in economics, culture, psychology, sociology, and ethics also play a role. Therefore, bits and pieces of psychology, sociology, business administration and law are included in the studies of economics. After all, the way in which resources are used or the way in which markets operate is the effect of human decision-making.
