BA in Economics The Ohio State University




Course info


Economics answers questions regarding why new companies start up, the causes of high unemployment and what determines interest rates. But economics is far broader. In addition to studying inequality and exchange rates, economists study underground and illegal markets, why people decide to get married and have children, and the economics of sports. Broadly defined, economics is the study of how individuals, businesses and governments make decisions and how the market mediates those decisions across a wide range of domains.

Economists develop theories to explain how the components of the economy such as individual people, companies and the government operate and interact with one another. They gather data to estimate the relationships among the various aspects of the economy. Based on these analyses, economists predict how people and companies will respond to changes in policies and external forces. These predictions, in turn, help guide private and public decision makers to form appropriate policies.

Possible careers

Economic analysis is used routinely in business decision making, as a policy-making tool in government, and in legal analysis involving business practices and personal injury cases.

Students have career opportunities in business, government, finance, consulting and education. For example, graduates are employed in banking as loan officers, account officers, credit investigators and trust services. Economics majors also work in the insurance industry as agents, underwriters, claims adjusters and brokers. Training in the field also leads to employment in industry as managers, buyers, economic analysts and consultants. Economics graduates work in the securities field as brokers, researchers and managers. The government sector offers careers in tax, budget and policy analysis as well as legislative support. The economics degree also can lead to teaching positions in the social sciences.

The undergraduate degree in economics provides an excellent base for graduate work in any of the social sciences. It also is excellent preparation for work in professional schools such as law and business administration. Generally, employment as a professional or academic economist requires an advanced degree.
