Learn more about studies in the School of Economics
The School of Economics provides students with a unique opportunity for an economics education in the context of a technological environment. Fourteen permanent faculty members are experts in a variety of fields including industrial organization, international economics, and econometrics. In a world where problems are increasingly multifaceted, Georgia Tech’s School of Economics helps students acquire the critical skills to compete in today’s global economy.
The School provides students with rigorous training in the tools of economics and statistical analysis. These provide the foundation for decision-making and leadership in the institutional environment.
The diverse range of topics studied include economic and financial modeling, international trade, the history of economic thinking, and econometrics. Seniors work one-on-one with a faculty member to write a research paper. Upper division courses typically have fewer than 30 students. The curriculum allows students to pursue a concentration in any field of their choosing.
Our graduates have attained positions with Ernst and Young, IBM, the Federal Reserve System, Bundesbank, Arthur Anderson, the Department of Justice Antitrust Division, and Sprint.
“What stands out about the Economics faculty at Georgia Tech is not just their outstanding teaching, but also their willingness to work with students outside of the classroom.”
