Economics Department, Loyola University - KSJ

Loyola University Chicago offers two undergraduate programs in economics:

  • Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree through the School of Business Administration
  • Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree through the College of Arts and Sciences

The undergraduate program in economics is academically strong given the number of faculty holding Ph.D. degrees from well-known universities; the quality and quantity of faculty research from nationally and internationally known schools; the various leadership positions in professional associations held by faculty; and the quality of the universities that accept our students into their graduate programs.
