Business and Economics Expands Curriculum

The Department of Business and Economics commitment to providing an ethical and relevant 21st-century education is attracting more students than ever. In response to a growing number of majors, the department recently expanded its programmatic offerings, hired two full-time faculty members, and relocated its offices from the basement of the Cardinal Cushing Library to the fourth floor of the Administration Building.

“There is a new vitality in the department,” says Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean William Leonard, noting the recent addition of a formal economics major as well as a concentration and minor in marketing. “Their new location better supports the department and the work they do, offering more visibility and networking access for current students and alumni.”

The caliber of Emmanuel’s programs in Business and Economics is reflected in the success of recent graduates. In the past three years, Emmanuel alumni have accepted positions at each of the Big Four accounting firms, as well as with leading financial institutions such as Fidelity, Merrill Lynch, Brown Brothers Harriman, State Street and BNY Mellon.
