Trailblazing research and pioneering programs: The new frontier of economics.

 Eller's Department of Economics is the key intersection between the social sciences and business, connecting you to industry trailblazers—so you can blaze new trails of your own.


Economics isn’t just the study of money and resources—it’s a way of thinking. Through our program, you’ll learn to think like an economist, developing essential problem-solving and analytical skills you can apply to public policy, international trade and countless other industries.

 Economics Department Statement on Racism and Discrimination 




As somebody who remembers the confusion and excitement of entering college without a clear path but with a wide-eyed appreciation of the range of options, I enjoy the chance to teach students who may not have considered economics before. Some discover a new interest and direction, and I hope that the others learn a powerful way of thinking about markets and social issues that they can carry with them.
