About The Program

Dr. Wesley Pech, Department ChairWelcome to the Department of Economics, Finance, and Marketing, part of the College of Business at Tennessee Technological University. Our goal is to provide our students with an innovative learning experience that teaches them the necessary analytical and critical thinking skills to succeed in today’s competitive environment.

During the first two years, students take several core classes that build the foundation of their training, and in the last two years students immerse themselves in classes that allow them to specialize in the field of their choice. These classes are taught on the beautiful Tennessee Tech campus and online.

Our B.S. in Economics is a STEM-designated degree (the only undergraduate degree in Economics in the state of Tennessee with this designation) that focuses on Quantitative Economics and Econometrics. Our students receive a very rigorous training in economic theory and statistics, which prepares them for jobs in industry, government, think tanks, and graduate school.

In addition to the required courses in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and Statistics/Econometrics, our students can choose electives on Behavioral Economics, Game Theory, Labor Economics, Law and Economics, Organizational Economics, Natural Resource Economics, and Economics of Healthcare.

Please stop by Johnson Hall 216 if you would like to know more about our programs and the opportunities we offer to students who want to pursue a degree in Economics, Finance, or Marketing.

Sincerely,
Dr. Wesley Pech, Department Chair
