Business Economics

Scarcity and limitation. Supply and demand. Risks and rewards. Business economics is the study of the choices we make when faced with limited resources. It involves analyzing decisions made by firms and individuals, as well as government policy decisions dealing with unemployment, inflation, international trade, income distribution, government regulation, and money and banking systems.

Program Overview

The major in business economics develops your ability to analyze the economic environment in which a business operates, understand how the economic environment affects the organization’s pursuit of its goals and apply economic logic to understand the organization’s decision making.
