About This Major

Why This Major Is Relevant

As world economies are becoming increasingly elaborate and interrelated, the recent economic downturn has brought to light the grave consequences of bad decisions in financial, real estate, and stock markets. The ability to understand the dynamics at play in a complex social, political, and economic environment is a challenge for government, business, and religious organizations. APU’s economics degree uniquely prepares graduates to meet this challenge and take advantage of ample job opportunities, generous compensation, and significant advancement potential.

“In all recorded history there has not been one economist who has had to worry about where the next meal would come from.”
– Peter Drucker
