The comprehensive degree focuses on building your critical thinking, business strategy and analytical problem-solving skills through unique projects, presentations and class discussions. Coursework throughout the major will cover business topics such as accounting, communication, information systems, finance, marketing and management, as well as economics topics like microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. This holistic approach ensures you graduate with a strong understanding of both business and economics, making you extremely valuable to a variety of organizations. Experiential, real-world learning is a critical component of the business economics degree, with many learning opportunities designed to fit student interests. Previous students have worked in groups on issues like the economics of global warming, public health initiatives, and local and state economic policy reform. Students with a strong interest in finance have explored the economics of derivatives markets or foreign exchange markets. And those who plan to pursue graduate work in economics have completed capstone projects in mathematical economics. Collaborative research is a cornerstone of the economics department, with many students choosing to travel internationally with faculty, pursuing a wide range of research projects.
