The need for people who know entrepreneurship and can perform economic analysis has been growing steadily. That is contrary to the much-repeated statements on the saturation of economics specialists. In addition to specific companies, economists specialising in rural economy are needed in ever more new industries. Major changes have taken place in agriculture and rural life in general in recent years, thus there is a need for developers of political measures, developers of support schemes, support administrators, support measure staff who would have extensive knowledge of both the economy as a whole and of agriculture in particular, and who would also know the specifics of rural life development.
