Curriculum and Courses
All economics programs require at least 30 hours of economics, which cover principles and advanced microeconomic and macroeconomic theory. In addition, business economics requires business core courses that prepare you to help firms and organizations understand and adapt to a changing economic environment. This major also prepares you for graduate study in economics, law school, MBA programs, and public policy programs, as well as for business careers in financial service industries and similar positions.
Economics majors are prepared to play significant roles in a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, banking and investment, retailing, and consulting. Economics majors interested in the impact of changes in public policy are employed by government and nonprofit agencies such as the Federal Reserve banks, while those interested in applying economic concepts to private sector issues often work for consulting firms.
