    Working in Economics

    Econ1One of the most attractive features of a degree in economics is the flexibility it offers.  Economists are in demand by employers in almost every field - from health care to technology, from sports to politics, and almost everywhere in between.  In 2013, economics majors were ranked in the top ten of the most in demand majors by employers, according to a survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

     

    Is it Worth the Investment

    Economics majors have one of the lowest unemployment rates and one of the highest starting salaries of all college majors.  In addition, Economics majors ran 15 on the 2013 Majors that Pay You Back scale - the highest of any business degree - with an average mid-year salary of $94,000.

    AACSB

    The UW-L College of Business Administration (CBA) holds accreditation at both undergraduate and graduate levels from AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This is a hallmark of distinction as less than five percent of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation.
