Purpose and Focus

Economics explores decision making in a world of scarce resources and unlimited wants, focusing on the behavior and interaction of consumers, workers, businesses, and government. People with training in economics experience high demand in the job market for several reasons. First, employers value the skills that studying economics challenges students to develop. These skills include critical thinking; problem solving; and the ability to find, manage, and analyze data. Second, world events often involve economic concepts, making economics majors desirable to financial institutions, government agencies, corporations, labor unions, consulting firms, and other organizations. Training in economics also provides excellent preparation for law school, master’s and MBA programs, and doctoral studies. As a result, economics as a major, minor, or second major proves an attractive option to many students.
