The economics major at Coe is designed to prepare you for graduate study in economics, business, industrial relations, or law, and to develop a general competence in the discipline of economics. Unlike many small liberal arts institutions, Coe offers over 20 different economics courses, including three quantitative courses, to better prepare students for graduate programs in economics.
- Most classes are limited to 30 students. Enrollment in most upper-level courses is 15 or fewer students.
- Upper-level business and economic students are given the opportunity to work as paid tutors and conduct help sessions for introductory students.
- Several economics majors engage in joint research with faculty members, presenting them at economics conferences and publishing in refereed economics journals.
- In the last 15 years, more than 200 department graduates have gone on to earn their M.B.A., Ph.D., or J. D. at prestigious institutions including Harvard, Vanderbilt,
- The University of Chicago, Brown, Northwestern, Berkeley, Washington University, Thunderbird, Stanford, Columbia, the University of Michigan and Cornell University.
