With the Business Economics major or minor, you gain a diverse business education, while taking a close look at what makes the economy move.

US News and World Report Best Undergraduate Business Programs, 2022-2023 logoUnderstanding economics can also help you develop solutions for many social problems, such as unemployment, inflation, poverty, racial inequality, and poor access to healthcare. 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.

Why Economics in the Business School?

  • Combines the strengths of the economics major with a business core
  • Emphasizes business-related examples and cases with Managerial Economics instead of Intermediate Microeconomics
  • Economics plays a key role in national policy and global business
  • Pairs well with a major or minor in Finance, Business Analytics, or Global Business

The BSBA in Business Economics is STEM-designated. This is particularly attractive for international students who are able to extend their OPT by two years after graduation.
