The Financial Economics Major provides a comprehensive foundation to launch your career in finance.

Unique in the Tri-State area, our major in Financial Economics builds a strong foundation in economics as applied to financial markets, banks, and other financial institutions. Students are prepared to work in a variety of settings as they learn tools and models used by financial analysts and financial advisors. They learn how producers, consumers, and governments interact to drive financial markets and economies and the role they play in shaping the national and global economy.
