About This Degree

Turn on the television news or pick up a newspaper on any given day and you'll likely learn of the latest economic forecast. From politicians to corporate managers - and even to individuals deciding if the time is right to finance a new car or home - an understanding of economics is useful. That's why people trained in economics are valuable employees. If you are undecided about a career plan, economics provides a broad course of study that will complement just about any field you eventually choose. Careers in areas such as marketing, retail merchandising, business administration, or public relations, combined with a solid economics background, will give you a big advantage when you start looking for that all-important first job.
