As a foundation for business principles, economics is a social science that studies how individuals, governments, firms and nations make choices about allocating scarce resources between alternate and competing wants. Paul College offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs that will ground you in the concepts and models of economics, while also teaching you the tools of economic analysis and how you can use these tools to analyze and better understand real world-situations such as efficiency of resource use, fairness of economic outcomes, and development of global and national economies.
