Overall, Economics majors earn higher starting salaries than students who major in any other social science field. At the University of Utah, most of our graduates move directly into the labor market, entering fields like investment banking, financial services, health care administration, and market research, as well as public-sector and non profit work. Graduates of the U’s program have put their networking and internship skills to work, pursuing careers as project executives, account managers, financial analysts, entrepreneurs, business development representatives, and accountants. Students may also attend graduate school in areas such as law, public policy, and business administration. About one-third of our recent majors have gone directly into graduate or professional school, with many of them entering prestigious programs in law, public policy, and business administration. An education in economics will prepare you for jobs in fields like investment banking, financial services, healthcare administration, and market research.
