Description

The Economics major includes a number of courses from the MECN, DECS, KPPI, and STRT labels tied together by a focus on economic methodology and applications. The Economics major is useful for those interested in careers in consulting, general management, or in regulated industries. In addition, the major is helpful for those desiring additional depth and economic perspective to complement majors such as Finance, Marketing, Strategy or Operations.

Major requirements are determined by the quarter you began your Kellogg MBA program. Any new courses and adjustments to the major displayed in the most recent academic year can be applied to previously matriculated students.
