Economics is one of Drexel LeBow’s strongest disciplines. The School is ranked among the best in the world for research on international trade and its faculty includes leading scholars in banking, monetary and fiscal policy, industrial organization and more. Members of the economics faculty have published in the American Economic Review, Rand Journal of Economics, Review of Economics and Statistics, and elsewhere.

The College celebrated its strengths in economics teaching and research by elevating its economics department into a School of Economics in September 2013. The elevated status for economics at Drexel includes growth of the Ph.D. program in Economics, the launch of an M.S. in Economics (first class begins study in fall 2014), recruiting additional high-quality research faculty and deeper collaborative research efforts around the world and with other schools and colleges at Drexel.

The School of Economics will continue Drexel LeBow’s commitment to offering a curriculum that is current and challenging, and to conducting research that aligns with business trends and informs policy makers. A degree, major or minor in Economics provides students with a robust understanding of the workings of the market system and major economic institutions, economic policy, and development.

Ranked among the Top 100 out of 1,400 economics departments worldwide in the field of international trade.

Academic and extracurricular support for students.

The school will host three distinguished visitiors in 2013-14: Jon Eaton (Brown University), Joe Harrington (Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania), and Martin Eichenbaum (Northwestern University).
