  • Build a solid background in economics and develop a unique perspective to help companies and organizations improve their decision-making and understand the consequences of their decisions. Explore areas such as data acquisition and analysis, interpersonal communication skills, critical thinking, report writing, and develop competency with relevant software. You’ll learn about economics and business careers through research, informational interviews of professionals, and exposure to work environments through job shadowing, volunteer or internship opportunities.
  • This degree provides you with the skills and training for careers in business and industry, law, government, politics, teaching, research and a variety of other areas.
