QC Economics
We emphasize top level research and quality teaching. Our faculty come from leading graduate schools and have published in some of the top journals in economics. The last few years have been particularly exciting as we have increased our hiring and expanded our course offerings.

We offer a Bachelor of Business Administration, a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, and a Masters of Science in Risk Management. Students who have graduated from these programs have gone on to distinguish themselves in business, elite graduate and law schools, and government service.

You can access some of our working papers on RePEc.

The American Economics Association has launched an informational video entitled "A career in Economics . . . it's much more than you think." This 9-minute film is aimed at anyone who may be investigating economics as a career option but are unclear how broadly a degree in economics can be applied. Available free at the AEA website and on Vimeo https://vimeo.com/135871291.
