Economics and Mathematics

Applied Mathematical Economics involves the use of mathematical techniques by business, government, and industry in such areas as production planning, resource use, design of communication networks, and management decision-making. These applications of mathematics have created many career opportunities for students who have both economic training and the necessary quantitative skills in mathematics, statistics and computer science.

This interdisciplinary program is a carefully selected combination of courses designed to enhance a student’s employability. The purpose of the program is to train quantitative economists who can step into research positions in government or business. Positions in financial management, operations research and economic forecasting are typical job possibilities for graduates. Employment prospects for Mathematical Economics majors are considered to be above average. In addition prospects for admission to graduate school in economics are enhanced by a strong quantitative background.
