Economics

Megan Donnelly

Alum Meagan Donnelly, who majored in Economics and Business Administration, talks about “The SOBE Experience.”

If money "makes the world go 'round," economists find out how it happens. Economics is the study of how people create and use the resources they have.

We offer a BA in economics in 2 areas of emphasis. The financial economics emphasis explores financial markets, processes, and theories. The general economics emphasis provides a balanced study of economic activities with specific focus on the free market system.
