Economics is the foundation science of modern business decision-making, forming the basis for finance, management, marketing, and international business. In today’s rapidly changing business environment, it is important that you are well equipped to analyze the economic conditions affecting every business organization and every individual when you graduate. You'll graduate with an understanding of worldwide markets with extensive analysis of the government sector, as well as issues concerning firms, consumers, and different industry structures.

Dozens of heads of state (including President Ronald Reagan, President George H.W. Bush and former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan), and hundreds of CEOs, politicians, artists, and athletes majored in economics, and you can join their ranks in all levels of government, private industry, and non-profit organizations. Economics graduates are needed in areas like product development, insurance, banking, the medical field, international trade, real estate, management, and marketing.
