Our Economics undergraduate degree teaches students problem-solving skills required to rise to top-tier managerial positions (economists earned an average annual income of $105,020 in 2019, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). Our rigorous, hands-on MBA program adds to those skills, building managerial confidence and critical thinking through experiential learning in the workplace.
