Economics deals with how societies use scarce resources, organize production, and distribute goods and services. Studying economics helps students develop analytical tools that can be applied to a wide range of problems. Students learn how markets work, how businesses make decisions, and how monetary and fiscal policy affect financial markets and the production of goods and services. A bachelor’s degree in economics prepares students for management positions in both business and government. The degree is also excellent preparation for law school, graduate business programs and advanced education in economics.
