Economics & Business.
The Drew University Economics and Business department seeks to instill in its students a holistic understanding of the economy and the disciplines of economics and business. Our students learn to think critically, analytically, and empirically about the economy, its challenges, and its connections to the rest of society.
The Business major is a liberal arts program that takes an integrated, multifaceted, interdisciplinary, and critical approach to the study and practice of business. The major is based on a set of introductory courses that provide foundational skills, a set of more advanced courses that extend those skills, and electives that span the wide range of disciplines, perspectives, and applications. The program emphasizes teamwork, critical analysis, oral, and written communication skills. Drew Business majors graduate prepared to work in diverse contexts from for profit business to non-profit, government and non-government organizations in both domestic and international settings with others from different cultures and disciplinary perspectives
The Drew Economics Department has established three broad objectives for its economics curriculum. It teaches students analytical tools for understanding the functioning of economic systems, familiarizes them with the origin, character, and operation of economic institutions, and enables them to make informed judgments about economic policy.
