Economics

Economics

Economics is a social science and helps explain the mysteries of how people and society operate. 

While economics isn’t a meal ticket to make lots of money in the stock market, it can help you understand how stock markets and other markets work. Economics also isn’t a business degree but will teach you important business skills.  

The field of Economics rewards creative and curious thinkers.  Whether you realize it or not, you already have a rich personal experience with economics.  You make dozens of economic choices every week:  how much to study, work, and spend; what courses to take; and what to do on Saturday night.
