Welcome to the Carnegie Mellon Undergraduate Economics Program. Carnegie Mellon University enjoys a rich history of innovative research and instruction in the field of Economics. By bringing together rigorous theoretical and empirical work, the University supports some of the very best research in Economics. Six of our past and present faculty have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics, and two Ph.D. alumni who were not on faculty were awarded the prize as well.
The Undergraduate Economics Program offers a range of degrees in Economics designed to develop strong analytical skills and a solid foundation in the discipline of Economics. In the classroom, we bring the same rigorous, innovative approach to enable our students to develop their talents and realize their potential. Our students also benefit from a strong culture of interdisciplinary collaboration and exposure to a broad range of research.
The resulting program provides a unique experience and strong placements both in the job market and graduate schools.
