The Business Economics program integrates aspects of economics and business studies, focusing on the use of economic analysis and statistical methods to deal effectively with management problems in practical business fields. In applying economic theory to business management, you will become familiar with the analytical and decision-making techniques used in the business world, and with the public and private institutional environments within which businesses operate. You will gain insight into critical business topics such as strategic competition, the internal organization of firms and international issues facing businesses in the changing global marketplace. You will be able to pursue a degree in business economics at the BA level.
