What our alumni have to say..
"I remember being confused about what I thought I could do with
an Economics Degree when I was in college but my response now
would be that it is probably one of the best majors you could have if
you have a wide variety of interests and don't want to limit yourself to
one narrow career objective. An economics degree will be a good
degree for any student wanting a professional career in any business
related field. It also teaches you to think about more than just a number
but the larger concern as well. It has helped me to become a critical
thinker which helps when analyzing complex loan packages and whether
they are a good or bad risk." Greg Ross, 1993 Alumni
