Modern Economics uses mathematical tools to model economics decisions and empirically test the predictions of these models. The Mathematics/Economics B.S. program rigorously trains students in the mathematical and statistical techniques required to take on the most scientific economics classes, and prepare them for a career in research. It is ideal for students who wish to obtain a graduate degree in economics, or work in financial engineering, data analytics, or actuarial studies.
