The economics program helps students develop an understanding of the economic systems which influence societies. Bluffton's economic program is centered on the historical, institutional and philosophical economic models that have been the traditional core of economics. Our economics courses focus more on understanding real-world case studies than abstract mathematical models.
During the past four years, almost half of the students graduating with an economics major continued on to graduate school in either economics or business.
Economics graduates from Bluffton are employed as analysts, administrators, researchers, teachers, computer analysts and law professionals at organizations such as Marathon Oil, British Petroleum of America and various Mennonite institutions. >>occupational outlook
