Bachelor of Science (BS) in Economics

The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Economics is offered through the Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business. Economics is a rigorous and rewarding major which familiarizes students with the economic aspects of modern society and teaches them how to analyze economic problems and evaluate public policies. Economics BS majors learn to use economic theory and analyze economic data which prepares students for employment as analysts, appraisers, managers, consultants, economic statisticians, brokers, bankers, and traders in a variety of industries in the private sector as well as in the government and not-for-profit sectors. Our graduates tend to be very successful and in high demand. Many of our graduates ultimately seek a postgraduate degree, with about one-fourth going directly to graduate school in economics, business, finance, law, or other fields. We recommend that students who are interested in pursuing a PhD in Economics or other quantitative fields should pursue the Economics BS Honors degree.
