The economics program, part of the Seidman School of Business, is designed to give students an understanding of the structure and operation of the United States and international economies and an opportunity to develop a specialty within economics or in a cognate field, such as mathematics or political science. Competence in economic analysis is a good preparation for work in private enterprise, non-profit firms and government.
