Coordinator: Stephanie J. Owings

The Economics degree program is one of the five degree programs offered in the School of Business Administration (SOBA).

The School of Business Administration offers two degree options for students pursuing studies in Economics. Both Economics options prepare students for graduate studies in economics as well as employment in business and finance. The study of economics also provides a good background for students who want to prepare for a career in law. These programs lead to a degree in either Business Economics Option  or Economics Option . Students may major in only one of the Economics options.

Economics-Business Economics Option  option is designed to provide students with an understanding of economic principles underlying the business world. The option shows the relationships between the study of economics and basic business decision-making both from the standpoint of the individual firm and from the standpoint of a business operating in the national and global economy. Students majoring in Business Economics will be prepared to continue graduate study in economics and for employment in government and business. The Economics - Business Economics option degree program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).
