Our Department of Economics has been ranked in the top 25 percent nationwide by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
Susquehanna ranked 28th in the May 2018 rankings, alongside such colleges and universities as Middlebury, Wellesley, Amherst, Vassar, Oberlin and Colgate, and the U.S. Naval Academy.
The ranking is based on the research output in economics and finance that is catalogued in Research Papers in Economics (RePEc).
"Susquehanna University has long valued the teacher-scholar model," said Matthew Rousu, dean of the Sigmund Weis School of Business. "This ranking validates the excellent research being conducted by our economics faculty members."
This is the most recent honor for the AACSB-accredited Sigmund Weis School of Business. The university was recently ranked as the No. 9 best college in Pennsylvania to pursue a marketing degree, according to Zippia Inc., which operates a website with career information for professionals across industries.
Susquehanna's Sigmund Weis School of Business is one of only six private, undergraduate-only business schools in the world to receive AACSB accreditation, hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than 5 percent of the world's business schools.
