The Economics major works toward developing effective decision makers and leaders in both the private and public sectors through a strong practical business education as well as a comprehensive liberal arts education.
The Economics major is designed to engage students in critical thinking so they can analyze problems, implement strategies, and contribute to the success of a business organization.
While pursuing the Economics major, students study under highly qualified faculty members who have expertise in their specialized fields.
The Economics major instills excellence, builds confidence, and develops strong leadership skills that graduates can use throughout their careers.
The Economics program is committed to the UW-Superior Campus assessment plan. Economics student learning outcomes and assessment metrics are developed through a collaborative continuous improvement process that integrates input from the campus and business communities. Our program's student learning outcomes are found at the Office of Assessment website at http://www.uwsuper.edu/assessment/uws-slo/by-programs.cfm
