What will I learn?

With the Business Economics major or minor, you gain a diverse business education, while taking a close look at what makes the economy move. Broad in scope, economics explains how people, businesses, governments, and organizations allocate limited resources to meet their goals. Understanding economics can also help you develop solutions for many social problems, such as unemployment, inflation, poverty, racial inequality, and poor access to healthcare.

Why Economics in the Business School?

You combine the strengths of the economics major with a business core
As a Business Economics major, you take Managerial Economics instead of Intermediate Microeconomics, which emphasizes business-related examples and cases
Economics plays a key role in national policy and global business
It pairs well with a major or minor in Finance, Business Analytics, or Global Business

Career Outlook

Economics is a well-paying profession, and as economic issues continue to resonate on a global scale, the demand for experts in the field will only increase. Firms in all areas of business depend on economic forecasts to understand and adapt to a constantly changing marketplace.
