Economics and finance provides a valuable background for any professional. Market forces and the worldwide flow of financial and nonfinancial resources impact all types of organizations. The ability to understand and utilize these forces is a valued job skill. Careers in economics and finance include stock and bond trading, financial analysis, banking, consulting, and international business. This major also provides a strong foundation for graduate work in economics, law, public administration, and international affairs. Through selection of electives, each student's program may be developed in accordance with his or her own career goals and objectives.
Required economics and finance courses are regularly offered in the evening. Most are offered at least once in a two-year period in the evening. Students are advised to check with the Finance, Economics, and Insurance department for specific schedules of evening offerings.
