Student Opportunities

Students enrolled in economics soar beyond the confines of campus during Study Abroad opportunities in countries including India, China and nations across Africa and Europe. Those trips abroad also involve attending international conferences, where students have been invited to present on research pursued in the economics program.

On campus students gain access to business fraternities, honor societies and professional associations that start connecting them to potential employers and contacts before they graduate.
