Establish major economic knowledge

As an Economics major, you’ll learn how to think about behaviors and problems that exist in an economy. You’ll also learn how to analyze economic data to identify and address these problems.

Economics majors develop theoretical, quantitative and analytical skills that complement and enhance what you’ll learn in other business disciplines in the Driehaus College of Business.

Our faculty members are productive scholars and respected instructors. They publish in prominent journals and devote considerable time to you, both inside and outside the classroom, to support your success. This allows them to reinforce your practical knowledge of economics, as well as provide valuable contacts for career opportunities.
