Greetings!!! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Economics, Finance and General Business. Our primary objective is to equip students with the skills necessary to understand how the world works and how to use this knowledge to thrive in any environment they may find themselves. The Department offers three majors: Economics, Finance and Business Administration. We offer day and night classes for your convenience and each of these majors will prepare you for a career in corporations, non-profit organizations, and the public sector. These majors offer high returns on your investment in college education, as starting salaries for each of them are ranked in the top ten of entry level positions. The majors equally prepare those students who wish to be entrepreneurs or move on to graduate schools. Many of our students have successfully completed graduate work at very prestigious graduate programs around the nation.
The Department also offers the Ph.D. degree in Business Administration with concentration in Economics. Even though most of the students who receive the Ph.D. degree accept teaching positions in colleges and universities, the degree equally prepares students for careers as researchers in corporations, non-profit organizations and the public sector. So, for a rewarding life and career, we encourage you to consider taking up one of our majors while at Jackson State University
We are pleased that you are thinking about joining our Department and we know that you may need additional information as you browse through this website. Please do not hesitate to call on me if I can be of additional assistance. My phone number is (601) 979-2531 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of our faculty and staff, let me welcome you again and we wish you the best as you explore opportunities for a college education.
Dr. Dal Didia, Interim Chair
