EMU economics experience

Simply put, Eastern Michigan University’s Economics Department taught me how to think. The diversity of courses offered by the department, everything from Financial Economics to Economics of Crime, enabled me to apply a variable set of theories to nearly any situation. I am often asked how I found success in a field that is primarily filled with Marketing and Finance majors, my response is almost always “Economics applies to everything”.

Now, pair the notion of applicable knowledge with caring, ambitious, and motivating professors that inspire your interest in Economics. Once paired, you get this equation:

EMU Economics Degree = (Applied Knowledge x Diverse Set of Knowledge) + (Caring Professors x Motivation to Help)
