Eureka Economics and Finance Program Overview

Recently, behavioral economists have begun taking seriously the premise that people care fundamentally not just about objective outcomes but about their beliefs. People cherish their beliefs, defend themselves from perceived challenges, and are often hostile to people who have other ideas. Such ‘belief-based utility’ can lead to camaraderie or conflict, information seeking or avoidance, uncertainty tolerance or aversion, and motivated reasoning or forgetting. 

Economics majors have a diverse range of career opportunities available to them, including positions in securities firms, banks, foreign trade companies, financial editing, consulting, and more. Previous Alumni of the Economics and Finance Program have secured positions and acceptances to the following firms/programs:
