A background in economics helps you understand, debate, discuss, and form national and international policy. Economists ask questions about societal programs and problems and employ mathematical and statistical tools to form sound policy. If you’re interested in international trade, international affairs, business cycles, or the stock markets, Siena's economics degree is the place for you. You'll go far with a degree in economics-students go on to succeed in careers in banking, law, marketing, journalism, environmental science, and medicine.

As a Siena economics major, you’ll study social systems, including families, markets, and corporations, so you can make policy recommendations and decisions that help bridge the gap between wants and means.
