The new offering allows students to fulfill the prerequisites for most MBA programs. In addition to the economics and business applications, the track requires related courses from fields such as communications, writing, health management or psychology.
“It is a liberal arts economics degree that replaces a portion of the economic theory with business applications and related courses,” said Richard McGrath, professor of economics.
The track prepares students for employment in the private and public sectors and for graduate studies in business and professional programs. It requires courses in accounting, marketing, management, finance and entrepreneurship, along with applied economics and limited theory courses.
In addition to the general economics, international economics and business economics tracks, Armstrong’s Department of Economics, under the College of Liberal Arts, offers undergraduate research opportunities and study abroad programs to destinations such as China, Denmark and Norway, Germany, and Ireland and Wales.
