Economics, Management, Accounting, and MIS
The Department of Economics and Business, one of the largest departments on campus, attracts students to study in the fields of economics, accounting, management, and information systems. The department contains a diverse collection of majors that includes several pre-professional business programs alongside the traditional social science of economics. The department was built upon the belief that vocational instruction is richer when embedded in the liberal arts and that social sciences become more relevant when combined with practical applications. All of our programs prepare students for ethical leadership, decision-making, and service in organizations operating within a global environment.
The department of economics and business has earned an excellent reputation for the quality and success of its graduates. Many have earned advanced degrees at professional and graduate schools throughout the United States. An exceptionally large number have become CPAs. Luther College graduates are well represented in decision-making positions in private, public, and not-for-profit entities both within and outside the United States.
