Welcome to Economics

The Department of Economics focuses on research and teaching excellence.  Our research encompasses a broad range of topics and faculty members have published in the very best journals in Economics. Our graduate and undergraduate programs cover exciting real-world developments and equip students with contemporary analytic skills. Excellent co-op work opportunities combined with classroom learning are key to our students' outstanding record of success.
