Degree Programs

Economics

Economics analyzes how individuals, businesses and governments choose to use resources. Such resources include availability, land, buildings, equipment and the knowledge of how to combine them to create useful products and services. This degree combines a strong combination of theory and the practical, hands-on learning you need to hit the ground running in your career.
