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.

The College Fed Challenge is an annual monetary policy competition sponsored by the Federal Reserve. Five of the twelve Federal Reserve districts participate in the currently virtual competition. Schools in the other seven districts are combined into an at-large district. Teams of students make a 15 minute presentation that covers the state of the economy and financial markets and then provide recommendations about various dimensions of monetary policy, including the federal funds rate, the Fed’s balance sheet, and communications. After the presentation, teams answer questions from a panel of judges. Learn More
