The Department of Economics, Finance, and International Business offers a number of programs to prepare students to function successfully in today’s global marketplace. Grounded in a foundation of the liberal arts and business courses, these interdisciplinary programs provide students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to work effectively in a variety of settings. For example, economics majors learn the flexibility of working on a global level, analyzing international development, trade, and finance, or on a local level, dissecting policy issues in one’s local community.  Finance majors can enjoy an interactive learning experience in the new trading room, currently under construction in the Tsotsis Family Academic Center, which will provide Assumption students the opportunity to access financial data and utilize industry-standard software and hardware.  The trading room is made possible thanks to a generous gift from Jeff '76 and Sue (Daley) '80 Lagarce.
  
No matter one’s chosen major, graduates of the Department of Economics, Finance, and International Business are positioned to succeed in jobs that are in high demand in today’s marketplace. 

Coursework is complemented by a number of experiential learning and internship opportunities—from Worcester to Wall Street. Those studying economics have the opportunity to take advantage of several partnerships to continue one’s education, earning a master’s or doctoral degree in economics from reputable institutions across the country.

The Department offers a range of options to fit many interests including majors and minors in finance, international business, and economics, economics with a concentration in business, or minor in law and economics.
