A minor in economics provides a suitable basis for careers in business, government and international agencies, law, teaching, public service, and journalism. It also offers the introductory platform necessary for students interested in graduate work in economics or business. As the economy of the 21st century will require knowledgeable workers who can function in information-based organizations, courses in the economics discipline stress the use and application of information technology.
The six-course business minor equips students with basic business concepts and tools that can be applied to enhance the application and marketability of their liberal arts education. Requirements of the minor – including courses in management, accounting, business law, statistics, and economics – combine theory and practice to build a strong knowledge base of core business processes. The business minor complements many majors, enhancing discipline-specific skills with preparation for today’s competitive business environment.
