Economics affects every aspect of our lives.  Economics addresses the collective behaviors of businesses, industries, governments, international relations, and the world as a whole.  It is an excellent starting point for anyone interested in the complex study of how businesses and governments balance either resources in relations to human capital, land/property, income, investments, taxes, and expenditures. The economics program is designed to provide students with a solid grounding in economic analysis and quantitative decision making skills that allow students to follow various career paths in business and government.
