Business Economics

The Business Economics major highlights the decision making of people in a business ---entrepreneurs, managers, employees, executives, shareholders, etc. --- as well as the impact of those decisions on society.  Graduates will have critical thinking skills well rounded in the liberal arts tradition to be successful in providing solutions to problems found in business and life.  These skills will include the ability to analyze existing systems or institutions, find economic data and other existing knowledge to apply it to a problem and then form recommendations to enhance efficiency and/or equity.  Oral and written communication skills coupled with the economic way of thinking will provide graduates with the necessary skills to effectively impact their work and personal lives as well as  their  community and society.
