Economics

Economics is a subject area that impacts every industry, culture, and individual. It focuses on how people, groups, corporations, and countries attempt to allocate limited resources to satisfy humanity’s needs for money, goods, and services.

As an economics major, you will learn how to create plans to forecast and address societal issues such as unemployment, inflation and environmental maintenance. Cutting-edge courses teach you the latest strategies and resources in economics, including microeconomic analysis, statistics and business trends in marketing, finance, information technologies, money and banking, public finance and taxation, economics and the law, government spending, and labor management.

Our economics faculty members are among the best in the field with specialties in world economies, including Europe, Japan, India, and East Africa, micro and macroeconomics, work salaries, and labor-related data analysis.

Economics MBA

This exciting accelerated degree program offers a 21st century alternative to traditional business education. Designed for today’s interdependent world where economic forces operate in an increasingly complex business environment the 5-year program combines an undergraduate education in economics with a comprehensive MBA preparation in management, marketing, finance and world business. Upon graduation, students will be uniquely equipped for careers in investment banking, international trade and supply chain management.

To further their understanding of international economics, global economic forces and international business planning, students have the option of studying abroad for a junior-year semester at LIU Global’s center in China.

The B.A. in Economics/MBA draws on the strengths of LIU Post's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences renowned for its economics offerings and LIU Post’s College of Management, which is one of the elite 5 percent of MBA programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and is regularly listed in The Princeton Review’s Best Business Schools.

Upon successful completion of the required courses, students are awarded both a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and the Master of Business Administration a full year less than if the degrees were pursued separately. Because students take some graduate courses as undergraduates, this option offers significant savings in time and money.

The combined bachelors and MBA degree program requires the completion of 159 credits 123 undergraduate credits and 36 graduate credits for the MBA

Overseas Study and Internships

Graduate students may spend a summer at a university abroad and earn six credits (as electives) toward their degree at USF. Overseas study requires approval by the graduate adviser and coordinator of the area of concentration. Students might also pursue an internship, which would substitute for an elective course upon approval by the graduate adviser.

You can request more information from our website

Concentration Areas

Concentration options provide a framework by which graduate students may organize their program to achieve individual goals.

  • General Economics

Students collaborate with a Graduate Adviser to design a plan of study. Some students use this option to prepare for PhD studies; others prepare for careers as economists in government or the private sector. Opportunities exist for directed research, a master's thesis, study/research abroad, and internships.

  • Financial Economics

Students have the opportunity to study domestic and international financial markets, as well as the principles of financial decision-making in the banking, investment management, and corporate financial management professions. Students may also enroll in MBA courses and will complete a research project in the field of financial economics.

  • International Economics

Students take courses in International trade and International finance, and select three electives from such courses as Economic Development, Development Microeconomics, Development Macroeconomics, Natural Resource Economics and Development Policy, and International Political Economy. Students also complete a research project in international economics.

Scholarships

We offer a limited number of merit-based scholarships to incoming students on a competitive basis. There is no separate application for these one-time scholarships, which are limited in number, vary in amount, and cover only part of tuition costs. If a scholarship is awarded, it will be indicated in the admission letter sent by the Economics program. All students admitted to the Economics graduate program are considered for these scholarships during the admission decision process.

The Masters of Science degree program in Business Analytics (MS-BA) is designed to meet the rising national and international demand of businesses for professionals who can collect, analyze, and interpret the avalanche of data created in the context of economic activity.

This unique program will:

  • Address rising demand for business analysts of various types (e.g., pricing analyst, market analyst, process analyst, UX analyst) whose job entails the analysis of business-related data (e.g., transaction data for products, sentiments expressed by consumers) for the purpose of business decision making.
  • Position graduates in a world that appears increasingly data-centric (that is, more data generated and exponentially so) and data-decentralized (that is, both data collection and analysis is conducted within business units and sub-units rather than at the enterprise level).
  • Train graduates in the robust use of industry standard tools such as R and Python to solve business problems.
  • Train graduates to participate robustly in the entire value chain of business analytics - from strategy formulation to data collection/visualization to analysis and decision making.
