Michael K. Salemi and Carlie Eubanks

The Journal of Economic Education, 1996, vol. 27, issue 4, 350-361

Abstract: Between 1978 and 1994, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill experienced a cycle in the number of economics degrees it conferred that was more pronounced than that experienced nationally. A random sample of UNC economics majors between 1983 and 1994 showed that students screened out of the business curriculum made an economics major their second choice.
