Economics Major

Economics looks at how individuals make decisions within larger social groups, including communities, organizations, markets, and economies. It is not just theory; it is applied in every facet of real-world decision-making, from government policy to business strategy. It provides analytical and quantitative skills highly sought after in various fields, including finance, consulting, and public policy, among others. It is mobilized to solve pressing world issues: climate change, inequality, and healthcare.
