Would you consider economics a 'problem solving' degree?

    And if you were to end up as an economist or an accounting, how much problem solving does there tend to be in those jobs as opposed to something like engineering? Is it ever a case of just going through the motions, taking orders and filling out spreadsheets or something?

    I suppose accountancy would be more box ticking and filling out spreadsheets etc.

    Working as an economist is more varied, it's an office based job mostly sat at a computer but I wouldn't say it was boring or repetitive. Most economics grads however don't work as economists or even do anything where they really use their economics much.
