Department of Economics
The Department of Economics houses both the Business School and Arts and Science's bachelor degree programs in economics. Between the two programs, we are one of the largest majors on campus. Additionally, we contribute to the M.B.A. program and offer a Master's Degree and Ph.D. in Economics.
Our faculty specialize in a variety of fields, including applied microeconomics, econometrics, game theory, financial economics, political economy, environmental economics, macroeconomics and international economics. Their research is regularly presented at international conferences and published in leading scholarly journals.
