Career opportunities

As economics or business majors, students have a wide variety of career opportunities. Students in business often choose to concentrate in one of the functional areas of finance, marketing or management. Economics majors may concentrate in the areas of public policy or international economics as they prepare for graduate school or entry into the work force. Careers in administration, banking, law, government, sales, public administration and with international agencies are among student options.

Accounting majors have a wide variety of career choices, including public accounting with national, regional or local accounting firms, corporate accounting and government accounting. Beginning January 1, 2001 the state of Illinois adopted the 150-hour requirement to take the CPA exam. This requirement is consistent with about 80 percent of the states. Students who complete their 150-hour requirement at Rockford University, with seven additional hours may attain both a B.S. and MBA. Rockford University accounting students have done exceptionally well when taking the CPA exam.
