LeBow College of Business: School of Economics
Economics is one of Drexel LeBow's strongest disciplines. The LeBow College of Business celebrated its strengths in economics teaching and research by elevating its economics department into a School of Economics in September 2013. The School of Economics will continue Drexel LeBow's commitment to offering a curriculum that is current and challenging, and to conducting research that aligns with business trends and informs policy makers.
Economics is at the root of business decisions, government policy making and global relations. As a course of study, it can lead to diverse career opportunities. A degree in economics provides students with a robust understanding of the workings of the market system and major economic institutions, economic policy, and development. The Economics Department boasts an award-winning group of faculty members who are leading researchers and dedicated teachers. The world-renowned faculty members take a hands-on approach to teaching, research and mentoring students.
