View Curriculum

Turn on the television news or pick up a newspaper on any given day and you'll likely learn of the latest economic forecast. From politicians to corporate managers - and even to individuals deciding if the time is right to finance a new car or home - an understanding of economics is useful. That's why people trained in economics are valuable employees. If you are undecided about a career plan, economics provides a broad course of study that will complement just about any field you eventually choose. Careers in areas such as marketing, retail merchandising, business administration, or public relations, combined with a solid economics background, will give you a big advantage when you start looking for that all-important first job.

What Our Students Say

“What I really loved about the economics program at VU is my professors really cared about my personal success. The small class sizes at VU meant I really got to know my professors and the other students in the classroom. The professors went out of their way to meet with me outside of class anytime there was something I didn’t quite understand."
