An Economics major is a flexible and relevant option for students who don’t want to narrow their field of specialization. In OU’s SBA, Economics majors learn how economic analysis applies to major problems facing individuals, businesses, the nation and the world. While preparing students for the workplace, this major also provides an excellent foundation for law school or master’s degrees in public administration, economics or business administration.

The Economics Department has established a strong academic record and tradition. A scholarly journal, Economic Inquiry, ranked it fourth overall in producing the most published works among economics professors in universities across Michigan. Nationally, Oakland University was ranked seventh among comparable schools that offer undergraduate economics degrees.
