Department introduces Business Economics specialization

Student in the E Trading Education Laboratory

The long-standing economics specialization in business economics is now a separate and fifth major offered by the Department of Economics.

Students can now apply and be admitted directly into this major. Those who entered prior to fall 2018 have the opportunity to change to the 2018-19 catalog to declare the business economics major.

Key additions to the ‘new’ major are a capstone course in business and financial decisions in a global economy and a one-credit seminar with industry leaders that will introduce students to the breadth of career opportunities available with a business economics major.

Students in all three business majors will have the option of choosing business oriented economics courses instead of intermediate theory- Managerial Economics (Econ 431) instead of Intermediate Microeconomic theory (Econ 301), and Money Banking (Econ 330) instead of Intermediate Macroeconomic theory (Econ 3012).
