Economics for Business Option, Liberal Arts A.A.

 

DO YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR BUSINESS ECONOMICS?

With the option in Economics for Business, you will learn and develop the skills necessary to understand and adapt to a changing business economic environment.  You will have a competitive edge over most business majors for jobs in the business world—and many large corporations value the board analytical training in economics.

Business economists are prepared to help firms understand and adapt to a changing economic environment. They often interpret and forecast the general economic climate, analyze conditions specific to their firm, and also aid the firm’s operational efficiency.

Many students find private sector jobs in banking, consulting, insurance, real estate, brokerage firms, marketing, data management, budgeting, general management, sales, and in high-tech industries.

Economics for Business students have also generally studied demand theory and estimation, production and cost theory, analysis of market structure, government regulation of business, antitrust policy, unemployment, capital budgeting, inflation theory, the determination of interest rates, and international economics. Employers know that this knowledge will enhance their performance in managerial decision making.
