announced today that Seattle
University’s Albers School of Business and Economics ranked #1 in the nation as
the best undergraduate macroeconomics program. The ranking is based on student
survey responses that rank specialty areas. It was previously announced that
Albers ranked #3 in sustainability in the same survey.
“We are honored to be recognized by Bloomberg BusinessWeek for the strength of our
undergraduate economics program,” said Joseph Phillips, dean of Albers. “The ranking speaks to the
value of having our economics program within the business school when it
frequently is not. It also speaks to the academic excellence of Albers and
Albers offers a rigorous macroeconomics curriculum that
focuses on theory and its application. The school also offers courses in
applying macro models to economic growth, forecasting business conditions and a
variety of courses in financial markets.
Students help organize and attend panel discussions on
campus related to current economic events, such as the Great Recession,
regional transportation policy, economic forecasting and, most recently, the
global debt crisis.
