Economics Concentration

This concentration highlights the decision making of people in a business—entrepreneurs, managers, employees, executives, shareholders, etc.—as well as the impact of those decisions on society. Within this major, you can customize an economics concentration to your preferences and skill. As a graduate, you will have critical thinking skills well rounded in the liberal arts tradition to be successful in providing solutions to problems found in business and life. These skills will include the ability to analyze existing systems or institutions, find economic data and other existing knowledge to apply it to a problem and then form recommendations to enhance efficiency and/or equity.
