The study of economics provides an excellent background for careers in business, government and private sectors. The study of economics develops both quantitative and analytical skills which are in demand and applicable to many careers. Economics can be combined with many other business specializations to secure a dual major at the undergraduate level. Almost every large corporation and medium-sized firms hire economists to assist in pricing decisions, to evaluate the impact of government regulations and to forecast supply and demand conditions pertinent to effective business enterprise.
Furthermore, senior executives in many large corporations have backgrounds in economics and small businesses started by economists are always among the most successful.
