Economics and Finance

Studying Economics and Finance at Saint Peter’s enhanced my ability to analyze financial ratios and theories and to think critically, both of which proved to be value added tools in my profession.” – Manisha S. ’11

Are you curious about everything that happens around you?

Then economics might satisfy your curiosity.

In economics you study income, capital, and wellbeing. An economics degree incorporates math and statistics with connections to physical sciences such as biology and physics as well as many other disciplines—politics, law, history and psychology.

Our proximity to New York City makes it possible for you to visit leading global and national financial institutions such as the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank. In addition to preparation for graduate school, an economics degree also offers enormous flexibility in the careers you can pursue after graduation— everything from a market, policy or business analyst to a securities broker, bank officer or actuary.

And at a Jesuit university you will be encouraged to focus on the impact our economic choices make on each other.
