I’m a student of the Dushanbe State University. In the near future I’ll graduate from the University and become a professional economist. I’m sure that the profession of an economist is one of the most important nowadays in our Republic.
What makes a good economist? Whatever he does, an economist should have a through training in economic theory, mathematics and statistics and our University offers such training. At the University we are taught various general and special subjects, such as Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Management, Accounting, Money and Banking, Economic Theory, Statistics, Computer Science, Business Ethics, English.
The profession of an economist is quite diversified. The graduates of the faculty work at the educational institutions, various research centers and laboratories, in industry, business, banks.
Being employed in industry and business, our graduates work as managers, as executive managers, sales managers, financial managers. Some of us work as accountants. An accountant is one of the prestigious and widely required professions of an economist in a society. You shouldn’t mix an accountant with a book-keeper. While a book-keeper is mostly involved in calculations, like balance sheets, income statements, invoices, an accountant is responsible for designing the financial policy of a company.
Some of us work at the banks, at the Stock Exchange, others work for the government or are employed by various agencies and by military services.
Economists can solve many problems facing our republic.
