Business Economics

Economics majors develop skills that are needed by virtually every type of business firm. Economists work as financial analysts, marketing analysts, management trainees, project managers, and consultants. An economics degree will also prepare you for a variety of positions with federal and state governments, with agencies such as the Federal Reserve, and with research and policy institutes. Law school admissions officers also look favorably on economics majors. Economics majors who plan to teach in colleges or universities will need to go to graduate school first. Please note that some of the careers below will require further education.
