Academic and Career Advising

An economics major or minor are excellent preparation for life and work after college. Our graduates go on to great careers in business, finance, consulting, law, policy, and on to excellent opportunities in graduate studies. What makes the economics degree so versatile and valuable in today’s job market is a combination of what economists study, how they study it, and how they apply this knowledge.

And at CSB/SJU, the economics department’s curriculum offers our majors even more valuable skills to take into the workplace. We have actively developed advising plans for different tracks that students can pursue with the economics major.
