Study economics in New England's financial hub

Now's an exciting time to study economics. The 21st century has given rise to some of the most turbulent times in financial history, worldwide. At Suffolk University, we'll challenge you to ask pointed questions about—and find research-based solutions to—the key economic issues facing our world.

As a Suffolk economics student, you’ll analyze slow economic growth and persistent high levels of unemployment in many advanced countries. You’ll also study rising income inequality and health care costs. Plus, you’ll explore climate change, volatile oil prices, government deficits and debt levels, immigration, and currency crises—and their effect on the global economy.

The Economics Department's curriculum is designed to prepare you for graduate studies and for careers that require strong analytical, quantitative, critical thinking, and communication skills. These include positions in financial institutions, corporations, government agencies, and international organizations—just the kind of employers you'll find right around the corner from Suffolk in Boston's Financial District. Whatever your economic interests are, your professors will help you land a career-shaping internship close to campus.

Sawyer Business School offers a degree in Business Economics which combines the strengths of the Economics major with a business core. Suffolk undergraduate Economics and Business Economics majors are eligible for preferred admission to Boston College's Applied Economics graduate program.
