Economics is the study of how to evaluate problems and make critical decisions. Economics
students learn to locate and use data such as those found at the Bureau of Economic
Analysis, Bureau of the Census and Bureau of Labor Statistics. Students learn to use
this information to develop a general framework of analysis for solving “real-world”
problems, conduct mathematical and statistical analysis, and effectively communicate.
Economics students will…
- Interact with qualified, award winning faculty in a small class environment.
- Study in Robert A. Dempster Hall, an efficient and beautiful business building with
a look and feel of a corporate environment.
- Have access to more than 30 study-abroad programs offered with the Harrison College
- Have access to Southeast’s Center for Economic and Business Research, which provides
undergraduate students with experience conducting and publishing economics research.
Operated by Southeast faculty and advised by professionals in the industry, the center
develops research, publishes a quarterly newsletter and hosts meetings to promote
economic development in the state of Missouri. The center also performs economic research
on a contract basis.
