Quantitative Economics is a joint program of the College of Business and Public Administration and the Mathematics department of the College of Arts and Sciences. The program offers integrated study in mathematics, statistics, and economics. The program is designed to prepare students for graduate study in economics (M.A. or Ph.D. programs) or business (Ph.D. programs or quantitatively oriented M.B.A. programs). The program also prepares students for research-oriented jobs in government, business, or consulting.
Two degree options are offered: a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) with a major in Quantitative Economics, and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) with a major in Quantitative Economics. Students who choose the B.S.B.A. degree should enroll in the College of Business and Public Administration. Students who choose the B.A. degree may enroll in either the College of Business and Public Administration or the College of Arts and Sciences. Students earning the B.S.B.A. degree must also complete the required business core curriculum.
All programs are to be planned in careful consideration with a departmental advisor and be approved by that advisor.
Students who choose the B.A. degree may enroll in either the College of Business and Public Administration or the College of Arts and Sciences.
