Economics & Finance

The department of Economics and Finance offers a broad choice of courses and three majors: economics, finance, and a dual degree in finance and business economics. The aims of the department are:

  1. To prepare students for careers in business, government, not-for-profit organizations, and economic research
  2. To provide an intellectual and professional basis for informed participation in contemporary society
  3. To direct the development of competent and well-disciplined students to undertake graduate studies in economics and finance. Prospective graduate students are advised to take the appropriate examinations (GRE, GMAT, or LSAT).

The dual major in Economics and Finance is officially recognized by the CFA Institute. This status is granted to institutions whose degree program(s) incorporate at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), which provide students with a solid grounding in the CBOK and positions them well to sit for the CFA exams.
