The Technical University of America is committed to providing a strong undergraduate program in Economics and Finance that teaches students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the workplace.

Economics studies how societies allocate their scarce resources among various alternatives and the consequences of these decisions. The field of Finance, in turn, is concerned with how investment decisions are made by corporations and financial intermediaries and how financial markets operate locally and globally. The areas of inquiry in the economics and finance program include money and banking, international trade and finance, labor-market analysis, and the study of emerging markets among others.
