Susquehanna University’s Department of Economics has been ranked in the top 25% nationwide by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

Susquehanna ranked 29th among national liberal arts institutions in the May 2021 rankings, alongside such colleges and universities as Amherst, Colgate, Columbia, Vassar 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. The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis is one of 12 regional Reserve Banks that make up the United States’ Federal Reserve System.

“Susquehanna University has long valued the teacher-scholar model and this ranking validates the excellent research being conducted by our economics faculty members,” said Olu Onafowora, department chair and professor of economics in the Sigmund Weis School of Business. “We are honored to be included in a ranking from this prestigious institution.”

Susquehanna’s Sigmund Weis School of Business is one of only a handful 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% of the world’s business schools.
