A useful background for students interested in careers in banking and financial institutions, government agencies, and consulting, our program focuses on learning to analyze the world in terms of tradeoffs and incentives — that is, to “think like an economist.”
As an economist, you will study people, firms, governments and markets. While economics can be linked to business, it also pairs well with other fields of study such as psychology, sociology, math, law, journalism and political science.

I’ve gotten a lot of hands-on experience in economics because of the one-on-one attention my professors can give.

This department helped me find an internship. Being involved informs me of opportunities such as a case study competition, where the winner’s research is published in a legitimate journal. That’s huge.
