The Department of Economics offers a program in economics that enables students to succeed in a competitive global environment. Students who concentrate on economics learn the basis for integrating knowledge of the functional areas of business administration in industry, government, and non-profit organizations.
The concentration in business economics focuses on the best ways to get the most benefit from scarce resources. It covers firms and organizations (microeconomics) and nations (macroeconomics). The concentration provides the conceptual basis for integrating knowledge of the functional areas of business administration in industry, government, and nonprofit organizations. By so doing, it opens the way not only toward teaching, research, and consulting, but also toward graduate study in business, government and law.
