Business Economics Major
The Business Economics major is designed to provide students with an understanding of economic principles underlying the business world. The option shows the relationships between the study of economics and basic business decision-making both from the standpoint of the individual firm and from the standpoint of a business operating in the national and global economy. Students majoring in Business Economics will be prepared to continue graduate study in economics and for employment in government and business. The Business Economics Major is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).
The Economics major focuses primarily on economic principles and is designed to provide students with an understanding of the present economic system and how economics relates to other disciplines and fields of study. The Economics Major is designed for students who desire to study economics but do not wish to take all of the common requirement courses prescribed for Business Administration majors. The Economics Major is excluded from the AACSB International School of Business Administration accredited degree programs.
No more than one course from the major department will count toward any minor. A student majoring in any discipline other than Economics or Business Economics may complete a minor in Economics upon satisfactorily fulfilling the requirements.
