"Economics is the study of mankind in the ordinary business of life."
Alfred Marshall (1842 - 1924)
Student Life in the Economics Department
In both the B.A. and the BBA programs, students receive attention from highly trained faculty experienced in the application of economics to social, business, and government issues. Economics students develop analytical capabilities, quantitative skills, and computer acumen that provide excellent preparation for business and government policy-making and the analysis of contemporary affairs. A general business minor with an economics concentration is also offered to undergraduate students.
Internships in economics are encouraged so that students can apply their classroom training to 'real-world' problems and practices in a variety of organizations. The department also has an active student-run club, the Adam Smith Society, which sponsors speakers and social activities for students, faculty, and alumni. Outstanding students are eligible for selection to Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international economics honor society.
