Unlike other business majors, “economics” is rarely a job title. Most accounting majors become accountants, and many HR majors become human resource managers, but very few economics majors become economists. (However, some do – we have a number of our economics graduates pursing PhDs in schools across the U.S. right now.)

But rather than being a disadvantage, we think that’s a major plus. Because an economics major opens doors into careers in banking, finance, insurance, marketing, and in consulting, most frequently in the “analysis” end of these fields. Below are just a few examples of the many kinds of jobs an undergraduate Economics degree at UW Oshkosh has led to:
