Economics Major
Bachelor of Business Administration


Use the power of game theory, financial tools and research to start a career with influence, and join an occupation needed by every industry.

By using different economic tools, you’ll learn to see trends and patterns that can be turned into opportunities. Turn those discoveries into forecasts and recommendations that can help organizations make money, save money, move forward and even change the world.

If you enjoy math or have strong math skills, you may be particularly well suited to the study of economics. This specialization involves the analysis and interpretation of data on a regional, national and international level.


Because economists search for ways to best use scarce resources, they can be found in:

Government, health care, law, natural resources, green industries, financial institutions, information and technology, product development, non-profits, think tanks, fitness and leisure, wellness, entertainment, education, agriculture, fashion, and more.
