Why major in business economics?
Economics teaches valuable analytical skills and problem-solving techniques. It presents you with a powerful set of analytical tools that can be used to look back and explain why events unfolded the way they did; to look around and make sense of your personal decisions and events around the world; and to look forward so that you can anticipate the effects of major policy changes.
You already have personal experience with economics. You make dozens of economic choices every week; how much to study, sleep, work, spend or save; which courses to take; which snack to buy; and what to do Friday night.
As economics major will help you build on your experience to understand how the economy works, not only for you personally but across the region, the nation and the world.
Why a double major in business economics?
In addition to a specialized business major, a double major in economics offers both he sterling reputation of economics along with the particular skills needed in accounting, finance, marketing, information systems or human resource management.
This combination elevates a graduate above single major students in the job market because most employers would prefer to hire someone with analytical and problem-solving skills in addition to the specific skills they have in their required field.
