Problem Solving with Purpose
Michigan Tech's Bachelor of Science in Economics provides graduates with a strong theoretical and analytical foundation for examining and solving business, economic and social problems. Sectors of the economy having employment opportunities for undergraduate economics majors include, but are not limited to, educational, energy, environmental, financial, insurance, governmental, and retail trade.
The economics program in the School Business and Economics entails a broad curriculum blending business, engineering, science, mathematics, and other social sciences. The degree program is structured such that a wide-range of field courses, such as econometrics, environmental and natural resource economics, game theory, public sector economics, and international economics, allows students to design their studies around their interests. Our economics majors also have the opportunity to take finance courses and become members of the Applied Portfolio Management Program. Undergraduate economics majors are well-prepared for graduate study in economics (MA, MS, PhD), law (JD), business administration (MBA), or public administration (MPA). Review the undergraduate economics courses. All economics courses are taught by faculty awarded PhDs in economics.
