Economics Major: Degrees and Tracks (Effective Fall 2009)

Schematic

Three degrees—BBA, B.A., and B.S., each with three possible tracks. Each student is be required to select one of the three tracks upon declaration of the economics major, and the track designation will appear on the transcript. The tracks are:

  • Business—for students who intend to take positions in the private sector or who ultimately seek an MBA degree after gaining necessary experience
  • Policy—for students who seek a law school degree, a graduate degree in less quantitative areas, or decision-making positions in the public or private sectors
  • Analytical—for students who seek a graduate degree in more quantitative areas or technical/analytical positions in the public or private sectors.
