About the Program

Courses in economics provide students with a foundation to prepare them for careers in business and government. Economists who work in business are expected to help their firms adapt to the changing environment. This typically involves short- and long-term economic forecasts of how changes in the economic environment will affect various aspects of business, such as marketing, purchasing, industrial relations, and finance. Most economists employed by the government are specialists in such fields as agriculture, labor, business, and international trade.
