Overview

Historically, graduates with economics degrees who go on to legal studies, an MBA (Master of Business Administration), or other related professional degrees do significantly better than students from other disciplines. Students with language skills may take an appropriate range of academic courses and obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

At Utah Valley University you'll find experienced faculty work with students in understanding the theory of their discipline and then demonstrate how to apply that theory in the pragmatic application of those principles in financial management, economics, statistics, and other business courses critical to their professional development.

Careers

Preparation for graduate work, banking, financial analysis, market analysis, government analysts, business consulting, and management.

Graduates of the Bachelor in Economics program find employment in a variety of public and private institutions while many go on to graduate education in economics, law, public policy, an MBA and other disciplines.
