Optional Concentrations for Economics Majors

Economics Majors (BS) in the School of Management have the option of completing concentrations in the following areas:

  • Accounting
  • Analytical Consulting
  • Finance
  • Global Leadership and Human Capital
  • International Business
  • Marketing
  • Management Information Systems
  • Operations and Supply Chain Management
  • Technology, Innovation & Entrepreneurship

These optional concentrations typically require four courses, although some also involve prerequisite courses. Note that classes taken to fulfill the requirements for the Economics Major can also be used to satisfy the requirements for these optional concentrations. Many of these courses are part of the requirements for admittance into the 3+2 Combined BS/MBA Degree Program. For more details, see the BS/MBA Combined Degree Program Website.

Economics students often graduate with two or even three majors. Mathematics, Statistics, Management, Accounting, Finance, Industrial Management, Supply Chain Information and Analytics, Strategy and Organizational Management, and Marketing are among the most popular. See the Request to Pursue Multiple Degrees page for more information.
