Economics Bachelor's Program
Technology, analytics and globalization continue to define the changing course of economics.
Stevens' leadership in these areas gives you a head start in the real world, both on internships and on the job or in graduate school. You'll gain an extra edge at Stevens, where coursework is aligned to the rigorous guidelines set by the American Economic Association in logical problem solving, data analysis, and compelling speech and writing. Furthermore, you'll enjoy plenty of opportunities to travel abroad, to see firsthand how business practices in other countries impact economics, both at home and far away.
Students complete the Economics major prepared to leverage their understanding of the global economics picture and data analysis techniques to excel in economics, banking or finance.
The economics curriculum emphasizes both technology and exposure to international aspects of economics, including an optional study abroad component. Students develop an international perspective and an appreciation for the technology that makes predictive modeling possible.
The major coursework puts a premium on data analysis, logical problem solving, and excellent speaking and writing skills — all areas identified by the American Economic Association as critical to student success in this industry.

The practice core at Stevens is where you’ll apply the skills you’ve learned in real business simulations, culminating in the Stevens Innovation Expo. For your expo project, you'll work in teams to either pursue a startup business concept of your creation, or work with executives at a New York-area business on a real-world consulting project. It’s one of the strongest examples of learning by doing — a value emphasized by Stevens and the School of Business — and provides instant credibility for your résumé.
