Today, the students of the Economics program from John Carroll University find themselves in a new golden age of data exploration. Increasingly, high tech businesses, think tanks, policy makers, and businesses in every sector recognize the value that people trained to see and think through the broad lens of economics bring to an increasingly data-rich world.


In your world, timeless economic questions of pricing, incentives, resource allocation and market/consumer behavior will seek better answers using raw computing power, machine learning, advanced statistics and data analytic methods.

In the past, economic research relied heavily on theory and simulations. The center of gravity for economists has shifted away from theoretical models to lab-based and natural experiments, fueled by varying sets of real-world customer and market data.        

What You Will Do

Historically, economists tracked and studied global and national macroeconomic trends — recessions, currency exchange rates — either to help a business better position itself for long run success or to help large financial institutions and government agencies intervene appropriately during challenges and crises.

In the data age, as the pace of both business and behavioral change quickens, economists focus on smaller trends across shorter time frames.

  • Do supply chain efficiencies improve a hybrid car maker’s profits?
  • Will changes in insurance rules and procedures impact health care labor markets?
  • Are default rates lower for consumers who secure a mortgage through an on-line app?
  • What causes someone to begin to book online travel, but then procrastinate?

While tech giants like Google, Facebook and Amazon capture most of the attention, as an economist you might work in teams using data to innovate across a range of settings: law firms, government agencies, national and regional banks, or non-profits.

Economics draws on important liberal arts frameworks — history, philosophy, mathematics — to address questions in diverse topics in business ( e.g. tax rates) and in such non-traditional areas as:

  • marriage and child-rearing
  • criminal behavior
  • social justice and discrimination
  • sustainability and ethics

Job Outlook

Although the Economics program from John Carroll University does not provide the same level of specific training as accountancy or finance, it provides the logical structure that pays off in understanding the big picture — a very solid grounding for fast growing fields.

The emphasis that an economic  mindset places on logical thought and problem solving skills has universal value. Employers in banking and other financial institutions, technology, science, consulting firms, government service, and many others seek graduates with these skills.

Many emerging jobs that economics majors pursue rarely have “economist” in the job description or title. You might explore business analytics or data science opportunities, knowing that the former may require broader knowledge of psychology, political science or anthropology while the latter will require more statistics, math and programing skills.
