We seek to provide students with a broad understanding of the nature of economic forces and the institutions that engage them.
The Economics and Business Department encompasses the fields of Economics, Accounting and Business. Students in our economics courses examine the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. They look at how these forces impact financial markets, the value of the dollar, third world development, environmental policies, poverty and inequality, and more. Accounting students begin by learning the basics of accounting and move into assessing the financial strengths and weaknesses of the world’s most powerful corporations. From leadership to ethics, management to productivity, and pricing to promotion, Business students can gain skills apply to a wide range of pursuits.
