You’ll learn basic principles of economics and how organizations apply them to finite resources, like cash, time and labor. Then you’ll study how companies manage their money. As an Economics-Finance (Eco-Fi) major, you’ll be exposed to everything from commercial and investment banking to mortgage markets and accounting. Many Economics-Finance alumni work in banks or government roles; others continue their studies through graduate work in business, law and related fields.

An accelerated BS/MS program is available to select, high-performing students in this major. If you’re accepted, you can earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in four years of study.
