Department of Economics

Economics is the study of how society manages its scare resources as we produce, distribute, and consume goods and services. Economic students learn the necessary analytical skills and economic intuition used in understanding our increasingly complex global society through firm, household, and government behavior. Issues discussed in economics can range from determining the price a firm should set for a product to assessing the necessity of rules and regulations in sports leagues. Our economics program is ideal for students interested in careers in fields such as economics, consulting, financial managing, market research, and banking.
