Students walking through the academic quad

The aim of courses in economics is to train students to think analytically about economic and social problems and rationally about personal, public, and business decisions. Economics consists of a structured body of analytical principles that can equip the student with a logical, consistent approach both to the great issues of our time and to the everyday choices that confront consumers, political leaders, businesses, and all individuals.
