The Business Major is grounded in an interdisciplinary approach, including classes in business ethics and statistics. Courses in management and finance instill solid business critical thinking paradigms, while also emphasizing group collaboration and presentation skills. Academic internships provide experience and perspectives that enhance both coursework and career opportunities.
The Economics major includes traditional introductory and intermediate microeconomics and macroeconomics courses, along with quantitative classes such as statistics and econometrics. Students are also required to take “critical perspectives” courses that challenge traditional assumptions found in both economic models and society. Students choose from a variety of elective courses that help them understand current challenges faced by policymakers, companies, and organizations, such as the economics of health care, money and banking, environmental economics, and economics of labor markets.
