Your Career in Economics Starts with a Degree

If you're interested in a career in economics, you'll have a chance to work in business, finance, or insurance, or you might work in applied research. An economics program will guide you through a variety of courses including: microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics and history of economic thought. Math, computer science, and sampling theory and survey design are recommended. An economics degree can open doors to a career in analysis studies, applied or development economics, and micro- and macroeconomics. After you finish your economics program, you could end up working for a manufacturing firm, a business association, or for the federal government.
