Overview

The primary objective of Department of Economics, Finance and General Business is to equip students with the skills necessary to understand how the world works and how to use this knowledge to thrive in any environment they may find themselves.

The Department from Jackson State University offers three majors: Economics, Finance and Business Administration. We offer day and night classes for your convenience and each of these majors will prepare you for a career in corporations, non-profit organizations, and the public sector. 

These majors offer high returns on your investment in college education, as starting salaries for each of them are ranked in the top ten of entry level positions. The majors equally prepare those students who wish to be entrepreneurs or move on to graduate schools. Many of our students have successfully completed graduate work at very prestigious graduate programs around the nation.
