Economics- Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Economics

For information, contact the Department of Economics 2054 Farmer School of Business (513-529-2836).

This program enables students to undertake a more rigorous and quantitative course of study, while still completing their degree work in four years. Additional required courses (including more quantitative courses), combined with more advanced mathematics and statistics requirements are an ideal preparation for graduate training in economics, as well as jobs in business, industry and government that require the more technical tools of economic theory and econometrics.
