A Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural and Consumer Economics can lead to a career which will take you anywhere in the world, from a Fortune 500 company to the local bank, and in ventures from development economics to wealth management.

ACE graduates experience more than just the theory of economics, or how to manage a large consulting client list.  They learn practical applications of economics in the food, environmental and consumer sectors. ACE students spend time with those who are influencing the industry from global leaders in agribusiness and finance, to influencers of national and international policy.  A University of Illinois ACE degree will afford you diverse career opportunities, grow your knowledge of the food, consumer and environmental sectors, and prepare you for a career as global or as local as you desire.
