• Overview
  • The economics of business.

    How you spend your time, what you buy and where you work all have an impact on the economy.

    In this program, you will learn how consumers’ decisions about use of resources – like time and money – affect global business. You will explore different types of economic systems (socialism vs. capitalism) and study economic drivers like supply and demand, inflation, international trade, unemployment and governmental policies.

    As an economics major, you will develop strong critical thinking, analytical and research skills. You will also build a solid foundation in all areas of business – including marketing, finance and management – through our nationally recognized Integrated Business Curriculum.

    When you choose the general economics option, you will have the flexibility to expand your knowledge and marketability by taking courses, inside or outside the business program, that complement your economic studies.
