A highly customizable minor in economics from the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business can complement a major in another discipline such as the health professions, engineering, political science, public policy or law.
Through the Chaifetz School’s economics curriculum, students will learn to apply theory and problem-solving skills while balancing public policy with the choices faced by today’s society. Students receive a solid introductory background in the field, taking core classes in macro- and microeconomics, econometrics and business statistics.
Students may pursue a wide variety of elective courses based on their personal interests.
The economics minor is available to both business and non-business students.
