The core of the program

Paraphrasing the famous economist Alfred Marshall, economics is a study of humanity in the ordinary business of life; it examines individual and social action that relates to the attainment and use of material wants and necessities. Thus, it is on one hand a study of how societies produce and consume, and on the other, and more important side, a part of the study of humanity. 

Students who study economics gain a broad global perspective and deep analytical skills that will be valuable in careers in business, government, teaching, law, and other fields.
