Economics, B.B.A. (R, A, L)

Economics is the study of how people manage limited (scarce) resources. All kinds of resources are scarce: money, time, natural resources, energy, land, etc. There are not enough resources to produce everything we desire, so we must make choices about how to use what little resources we have. In the end, sacrifices must be made. Economists study individual decision-making behavior, as well as the system of social, political, cultural and commercial environments where these decisions happen. A major in economics prepares students for a diversity of career opportunities. Economics majors are competitive for jobs in business and industry, local, regional, national, or international government agencies and social service institutions in both the public and private sectors. The economics major also is a good foundation for graduate training in business (MBA or Ph.D.), economics (M.A., M.S. or Ph.D.), public administration, law, and related areas. This major focuses on the commercial applications of Economics, with particular emphasis on analytics, innovation and value creation, strategic thinking, global perspectives, business knowledge and sustainability.
