The School of Economics is committed 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, major economic institutions, economic policy and development.

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.

Degrees

Our undergraduate programs include a BS and a BA in Economics, both of which combine coursework in economics and the functional fields of business administration within the context of a general scientific and humanities curriculum.

The MS in Economics and Computer Science is among the first of its kind. Combining training in advanced computational and econometric techniques, the program emphasizes managing and analyzing big data to create market platforms and facilitate cyber exchange.
