School of Economics

Economics is one of Drexel LeBow’s strongest disciplines. Our School of Economics 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 within our undergraduate economics degree offerings and our PhD program in Economics, the launch of an MS in Economics, 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.
