Economics at Otterbein University offers a unique way of examining individual and social behavior, often called the "economic way of thinking."  The study of economics provides powerful and surprising insights into many social issues such as discrimination, crime, poverty, welfare, education, income inequality, and environmental degradation.


Economists study how markets work and analyze the behavior of organizations. They also investigate the forces and trends that influence our standard of living, the fraction of the population that cannot find work and the rate at which prices rise.

The Economics major at Otterbein University balances theory and application. Real-life experience is integrated in all courses and comes from local, national and international scenes. 

The Otterbein Economics degree prepares you to pursue many excellent and rewarding employment opportunities in private, public and nonprofit sectors of the economy. Additionally, a bachelor’s degree in economics offers a solid preparation for graduate education – not only in economics, but also in law, political science, all areas of business, and disciplines with an international focus.


Careers in economics are varied and may include economic and business consulting, labor/trade organizations, banking, insurance, international business, financial planning and analysis, government (federal, state, and local), nonprofit organizations, Federal Reserve system, politics and education.

Many recent Otterbein University graduates who majored in economics are employed with private consulting companies and businesses in Ohio. Others have found employment in the public sector and with labor/trade organizations. Some of our recent graduates have pursued graduate degrees in economics and law at top-level institutions.
