An economic way of thinking is valuable in many fields of interest to our students. Some economics majors pursue a Ph.D. in economics while others pursue graduate work in business or law. Students in this major pursue various career paths after graduation, including management consulting, financial services, forecasting, and insurance.

However students choose to customize their study of economics, they leave the program with a keen understanding of the global implications of economic activity and policy and a mastery of the analytical and decision-making skills that drive them.
