Students in the economic major take rigorous courses that emphasize an international educational experience, including optional studies abroad, and the technology and analytics focus that’s at the core of a Stevens education. Students choose from a variety of electives, allowing them to explore related disciplines, such as finance and marketing, and get practical training through course projects and various competitions. Courses also emphasize the three areas identified by the American Economic Association as critical to student success: logical problem solving, data analysis, and compelling speech and writing.
