About

Quantitative Economics is a joint program of the College of Business and Public Administration, and the Mathematics Department of the College of Arts and Sciences at the Drake University.  

Overview

The program offers integrated study in mathematics, statistics, and economics and is designed to prepare students for graduate study in economics (M.A. or Ph.D. programs) or business (Ph.D. programs or quantitatively oriented M.B.A. programs). The program also prepares students for research-oriented jobs in government, business, or consulting.

Two degree options at Drake University are offered: a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with a major in Quantitative Economics, and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) with a major in Quantitative Economics. Students who choose the BSBA degree should enroll in the College of Business and Public Administration. Students who choose the BA degree may enroll in either the College of Business and Public Administration or the College of Arts and Sciences.

Career Options

  • The program in Quantitative Economics is designed to prepare students for graduate study in economics (MA or PhD programs) or business programs (PhD programs or quantitatively-oriented MBA programs). 
  • Such programs expect substantially more preparation in mathematics and statistics than a regular Economics major provides. The program also prepares students directly for research-oriented jobs in government, business, or consulting.

Programme Structure

  • The Drake Curriculum, required of all undergraduates, is designed to help students meet personal and professional goals as they acquire fundamental knowledge and abilities in ten Areas of Inquiry, including communication, critical thinking, artistic experience, historical consciousness, information and technology literacy, international and multicultural experiences, scientific and quantitative literacy, values and ethics and engaged citizenship. 
  • Students work closely with their academic advisers to craft a program of study in general education that prepares students for civic and professional leadership.
