Overview

Economics at Eastern Michigan University is divided into two primary, interrelated sub-disciplines: Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. Microeconomics studies how people, businesses, and government agencies use the scarce resources available to them (such as time, money, land, etc.) to achieve their objectives (such as earning income, making a profit, etc.). 

Learning outcomes

This involves the allocation of those resources among their different uses. Businesses and people make microeconomic decisions as they produce, sell and buy, and use the goods and services that people want or need. Macroeconomics studies the processes that determine the overall size of the economy, the factors that cause the economy to grow or shrink over time, and related problems like unemployment and inflation.

Students are encouraged to become involved in the Economics Club, a student-run organization that meets regularly to organize applications outside the classroom. Promising students are invited to join the Fed Challenge team, a student-team competition that competes with teams from other universities in a mock Federal Open Market Committee meeting. Students also have the opportunity to become members of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the national economics honor society.
