Internships and Careers


The economics department at Loyola encourages every student to pursue at least one internship prior to graduation.  Students can earn course credit for an internship by teaming up with a faculty member in the department to approach the firm or organization. The student is required to write a research paper on a topic related to the internship to obtain the three credits for independent study. Typically, students work 10 hours per week on site during the school year (or a combination of on site and on campus) and often full time during the summer.

At list of recent internships obtained by economics students is included below and students may wish to consult the internship pages of these organization as well as seek help at the Career Center:

Career Opportunities

The most basic and enduring strength of economics is that it provides a logical, ordered, quantitative way of analyzing numerous problems and issues. As a result, economics is widely recognized as a solid background for many jobs and professions.

Many Loyola economics majors have applied their training to challenging jobs as economists, financial analysts, or managers in business or government. Some of our students have continued on to receive their Ph.D.s in economics and are now pursuing teaching and research careers. Other students have used economics to prepare for graduate study in related disciplines.

Economics is an essential component of graduate work in other fields such as business management, public administration, law, and international affairs. Our students who have pursued graduate work in these areas attest to the value of their undergraduate economics training in enhancing their performance in their graduate professional programs.

Our Graduates’ Careers

A background in economics opens the door to a wide array of post graduate opportunities, everything from being a research analyst at the Federal Reserve to working as a portfolio manager or to a strategy consultant.  The examples below are a sampling of our graduates current professional positions.  If you would like to get in touch with alumni about their careers either informally, or through the Economics Mentoring Program, please get in touch with your advisor or Jeremy Schwartz, the Chair of the Economics Department.
