|Description:||An Economics major is offered as a specialization for the Bachelor of Business Administration program and will prepare students for a career in a variety of industries, government, and non-profit organizations.
In the Economics Major, students learn cost-benefit analysis to understand how people make decisions about using scarce resources and the ramifications of these decisions for businesses and other stakeholders. Students are trained to master three important skills: logical thought used in solving problems, observation and inference from data, and presenting ideas both in writing and verbally. These skills are proven useful and easily transferable to a variety of settings at both personal and business levels, and in both private and public sectors of the economy. Knowledge of economics enables students to monitor and study changes occurring in specific countries or individual sectors of an economy. This amounts to asking fundamental questions about the nature of economic decisions and at times addressing proposals to change government policies. The curriculum covers areas international trade, finance, money, banking, and financial institutions, globalization of markets, among others.
