Economics is the study of how people, businesses and governments choose to allocate their resources—from how humans produce things to how they distribute and consume things. Students explore the quantitative, policy-oriented social science and learn how economic theories can be applied to a wide range of real-world situations. Our graduates are well equipped to perform economic analysis in most commercial and policy settings, and to continue on to graduate school.
