BACHELOR OF ARTS
Training the next generation of economic experts.
Majors of this program receive a solid foundation in the functional areas of business — finance, accounting, marketing and management — as well as economic fundamentals, such macroeconomic indexes (economic growth, inflation and unemployment rates) and microeconomic indexes (demand-supply, production costs, and price and output based on the market). Graduates of this program will qualify for employment in the areas of banking, consulting, investment and brokerage houses, sales and marketing, and may look for positions such as financial analysts, risk management analysts, forecasters, or analyst staff members in litigation, mergers, or acquisitions. Many opportunities also exist for business economic students in various government agencies at the federal, state and local levels as analysts and researchers.
The minor in business administration is open to non-business majors only. This minor includes eight courses (24 credits) designed to prepare students with general knowledge of the world of business, along with the communication skills and decision-making tools needed to succeed in business.
