Economics is the foundation of both scholarly careers studying and forecasting economic patterns and careers in business for banks, financial institutions and corporations of all kinds.

Many of our majors go on to prestigious business and professional schools. Some go directly to Wall Street. Others head for positions in government and nonprofits—one of our seniors interns at the Securities and Exchange Commission in Manhattan, the happy outcome of meeting a Drew alumna who works there.

Our emphasis on presentation skills, and the personalized coaching our majors get, mean they shine in lecture halls and conference rooms.

Instead of taking a general class, this allowed me to develop my interest further in international economics, and I now plan to write my honors thesis on it since I find it so interesting. ”
