Overview

 Economics is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. As a vice president of a mult-ibillion dollar corporation once put it: “Economics teaches us to confront problems, to size them up and to wrestle with creative solutions. And that is what firms hire you to do.”

You will find award-winning classroom instruction. We have five full-time faculty members, all with PhDs, who are united in a common mission of providing the best possible education for our students. Almost all have won college and/or university-wide awards for the quality of their classroom teaching. It is unlikely that any other economics department in the U.S. can boast of such a record.

Our students have been successful in entering graduate programs, in landing promising entry level jobs and, more importantly, in advancing in those positions through time. Click here to view a video produced by the American Economics Association on what you can do with economics.

Economics is housed in the College of Business Administration as part of the Department of Accounting, Finance, and Economics.
