Overview

Economics is the study of the rational allocation of scarce resources.  This major seeks to develop critical skills that will help you understand and solve problems in a wide variety of circumstances. These analytical abilities are valuable in the business world and many professional disciplines such as law and social work.

Through the Department of Economics, the Richard T. Doermer School of Business offers programs in business economics and public policy.  The Bachelor of Science in Business (B.S.B.) program is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

The business economics program explores the economic environments in which businesses must operate, as well as the interrelationships among micro- and macroeconomic conditions, private-sector decision making, and governmental programs. Students have opportunities to study economic problems and their alternative solutions.  Students may also study aspects of employment, inflation, international  trade, and other economics subject areas.
