Economics major

UIndy's School of Business offers both an economics major and a minor that can compliment other related majors. Majoring in economics gives you analytical training and helps you develop valuable problem-solving skills that provide a great foundation for a career in many industries. Interested in law school? Economics majors perform near the top of all majors on the LSAT exam, according to the Journal of Economic Education.

Program Strengths

  • Two program tracks: international trade and public policy. This gives you more flexibility to pursue careers in either the public or private sector.
  • Because of the required core business classes, UIndy's economics degree gives you a stronger business foundation than an economics degree from a traditional liberal arts program
“I chose the University of Indianapolis because of the small class sizes, which made it possible for one-on-one learning from professors. Furthermore, the University of Indianapolis location in a major metropolitan city made it possible to have internships at fortune 500 companies, and with sports franchises, such as the Colts and Pacers.”
