At the same time, the field of economics is essential to understanding the business world and it provides the foundation for applications in accounting, finance, management and marketing. An economics education leads to career opportunities in business, education and government, as well as non-governmental and non-profit organizations. It is valuable as a major or minor for those planning to pursue further professional or graduate training in business administration, industrial and labor relations, international relations, law, and public policy and administration.

The curriculum of the Economics program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater is divided into economic theory, quantitative methods and a variety of applied subfields. Students who are considering graduate work in economics or related business disciplines should consider a minor in mathematics or a double major in economics and mathematics.

Job Outlook

National employment growth for economists is expected to be 6 percent1 from 2016 to 2026, and projected growth in Wisconsin is 13.5 percent2 for the same period. Though most economist positions require an advanced degree, some entry-level jobs found within the government may only require a bachelor's degree. 

Economics majors are not limited to economist positions, however. The mathematical, analytical and critical thinking skills developed through the curriculum and co-curricular activities lay a strong foundation for nearly any career path.
