Economics Major


Utica College's business and economics faculty are nationally and internationally recognized for their scholarly accomplishments as well as for their real-world business experience. Collectively they represent a wide range of expertise and research interests, including health care financing, public school aid formulas, banking, and managing change.

At the same time, at Utica College, teaching is the faculty's first priority. Small classes provide opportunities for close interaction between and among faculty and students, and the relationships students form with their professors often last a lifetime.

The overwhelming majority of faculty are doctorally trained; several additionally hold an M.B.A. Faculty regularly share their expertise by serving as members of professional organizations, presenting at scholarly conferences, and consulting with local businesses and government agencies. These connections help faculty develop internship opportunities for students, and also serve as networking resources for UC graduates seeking employment.

The faculty's scholarly accomplishments, professional experiences, and academic credentials combine to provide students majoring in business and economics programs with a dynamic and fulfilling learning experience both inside and outside the classroom.
