Economics encompasses far more than supply and demand. At Bentley, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of currency systems, monetary theory and consumer behavior. You’ll learn how markets function at both micro (individual) and macro (national or global) levels, and explore mathematical models and statistical techniques you’ll use to interpret economic data, issues and trends. You’ll graduate with broad-based knowledge and strong analytical skills you can employ in a variety of careers in business, government, education, international organizations and non-profit institutions.
