Understanding 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?

- Emphasizes business-related examples and cases with Managerial Economics instead of Intermediate Microeconomics
- Economics plays a key role in national policy and global business
