Public Policy Analysis Major
The major in Public Policy Analysis provides students with training in the application of micro- and macroeconomics to the analysis of the effect of governmental policies, international capital markets, and terms of trade on the business environment.
As job opportunities have expanded, firms have become particularly interested in the fields of policy analysis, applied economics, and forecasting. As a result, most public policy analysts are involved in a variety of tasks rather than in narrow or highly specialized work. Thus a broad (rather than specialized) education in public policy analysis and business administration is advantageous. Analysts may be employed by companies in the fields of banking, manufacturing, transportation, utilities, insurance, real estate, finance, mining, and retailing. In addition, many trade associations, consulting firms, and governmental agencies employ public policy analysts. Furthermore, public policy analysts often are asked to provide advisory services to top management for use in integrating governmental regulations into corporate strategy.
