Overview

This training in decision-making gives you a particular advantage if you are keen on becoming CEO of a company one day.

Also, Economics majors rank in the top three of the highest-scoring majors on the LSAT exam.

The graduates of our program have started their careers as data analysts, economic and financial analysts, legal experts, working for companies such as Vectren and M&T Bank, and some have gone on to found their own companies. Some graduates have pursued and successfully completed Master’s and Ph.D. programs in economics and other business disciplines, with jobs in the private sector and academe.
