Economics provides general analysis of decision making where resource constraints are present. Within the area of business, the fields of economics and finance are perhaps the most rigorous in terms of the use and application of mathematical and statistical reasoning. Students with a bachelor's degree in Business Economics are generally prepared to take entry level jobs in any area of business, but are particularly prepared for jobs that call for data analysis, pricing, purchasing, and report writing. Business economists are often employed in private business firms in the financial, retailing, and industrial sectors. A complete career guide is available from the department chairperson. A degree in Business Economics is also regarded by graduate business schools as excellent preparation for advanced work toward an MBA, as well as advanced degrees in other business related disciplines such as human resource management, public administration, finance, and international business. Students seeking an advanced degree in economics, law, other social and behavioral sciences, urban and regional planning, actuarial science, etc., should also investigate the General Economics Major.
