Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: Business Economics

BSBA Economics: Business

Economics is the study of how to evaluate problems and make critical decisions. Economics students learn to locate and use important data such as those found at the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Bureau of the Census, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Students use this information to develop a framework of analysis for solving real-world problems, conduct mathematical and statistical analysis, and effectively communicate.
