I am an international student, currently in 12th grade (high school senior). I am really looking forward to double majoring in economics/ finance + computer science. What university offers good courses in both the fields AND has a decent acceptance rate? Also, tuition is a big deciding factor for my family, so it would be great to get admitted with an affordable tuition (around 20,000 USD per year)! Any university that offers aid or scholarship would be great. But the major concern to sum up will be good double majors.
Hi there! Lots of schools offer special CS+Econ dual degrees (I've listed a very small sample below), but even at schools that don't have these dedicated programs, you are almost always able to double major in the two fields.
- Yale University [Acceptance rate 6.2%]
- Washington University in St. Louis [Acceptance rate 13.9%]
- University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign [Acceptance rate 59%]
- Brown University [Acceptance rate 7.1%]
- University of Pennsylvania (Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology) [Acceptance rate 7.7%]
Financial aid policies between these schools varies with regard to international students, with some (e.g. Yale) offering to meet your full demonstrated need and others not being able to practice need-blind admissions for international citizens.
Best of luck in the admissions process!
