Abstract

The purpose of this work is to demonstrate the importance of economic education for sustainable development of the country. Also, to study the tendencies of its demand in Georgia. The study analyzes a number of entrants willing to enroll in the Bachelor and Master degree economic programmes for 2013-2018 years. Also, it analyzes the average dynamics of scores of applicants in the same years. Analysis showed that the number of entrants, as well as graduates, selecting the profession of economics, is decreasing according to years. Furthermore, this analysis allows us to assume that the financing of the economic programme is less likely to determine the choice of applicants.
