Minor in Business Economics

A Business Economics minor provides students with more advanced training in microeconomics and macroeconomics to supplement that received in EC 111 and EC 112. This minor is sufficiently flexible that, with the coordinator’s guidance, courses can be chosen to align with the student’s academic and career goals.
