economics finance


Good news: At Bentley, you don’t have to choose between economics or finance. You can learn both through one program.

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 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.
