Choices to Match to Your Interests
We offer two roads to an economics degree.
Choose our technically focused Bachelor of Science that integrates business administration courses and earn a degree from our AACSB-accredited Sigmund Weis School of Business. Less than 5% of the 15,000+ business programs worldwide have earned AACSB accreditation, making our program part of an elite group.
Or, you can pursue our Bachelor of Arts degree to become a well-rounded economic analyst who excels at writing, teamwork, presentations, critical thinking, interpersonal relationships and leadership.
Either path sets you up for success when you explore a career in finance, investment banking or government, or pursue a graduate or law degree.
