Welcome to the Department of Economics

Economics at Northeastern focuses on the application of economics to real-world problems of policy and business.

Experiential Academics

We drive interdisciplinary thinking and problem solving on issues of pressing concern to society at local, state, national, and international level – from transportation, housing, energy and community development to social and environmental justice, resilience and sustainability.

By educating students in both theory and practice, we prepare them to become effective contributors to social, economic, and environmental change, in careers spanning the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, as well as academic research.
