Economics is at the root of business decisions, government policy-making and global relations. As a course of study, it can lead to diverse career opportunities, and is often viewed favorably as excellent preparation for graduate programs such as business and law.
A degree, major or minor in Economics provides students with a robust understanding of the workings of the market system and major economic institutions, economic policy, and development.

Globalization is increasing the demand for business professionals with international expertise. The study of international business prepares students to navigate the economic, political, cultural, and legal landscape that changes as a firm moves from one country to the next. This area of study provides excellent preparation for students who want to work overseas, work for a multinational firm, or expand a domestic business overseas.
