The economics department is located in the William E. Simon Center for Economics and Business, named in honor of former U.S. Treasury Secretary William E. Simon ’52.
A computer classroom is heavily used by classes in financial accounting and econometrics. “Smart” classrooms allow faculty to use the Internet, computer software, film, video, and a camera to display images and three-dimensional objects to complement discussions and presentations.
The department subscribes to several economics databases used by students and faculty. A lounge in the lobby provides comfortable space for students to work together on group projects or to socialize between classes.
