Economics Major (Business Administration), BS in Business Administration – Collateral Option


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Business Administration

The economics major provides an opportunity to apply the  theoretical and analytical rigor of basic managerial and macroeconomic tools to contemporary issues in economics and business. Students choose from a traditional option (24 hours in economics), a collateral option (complementary course work in finance, mathematics, or statistics), or a dual concentration in international business. Electives, as well as major course work under the traditional option, consider topics such as business/industrial organization and public finance, as well as international, quantitative, monetary, regional/urban, environmental, labor, and health economics. Majors pursue careers in the traditional business disciplines, consulting, all levels of government service, and a variety of other fields. The program provides excellent training for graduate work in economics, business, public policy, and law. Students planning to pursue graduate study in economics should elect the quantitative economics and mathematics collateral option.
