Managerial Economics

Here’s where you can put theory into practice...

Managerial economists bridge the gap between what’s in the books and what moves the needle, like how much a product costs or where to expand.

As a Managerial Economics major, you’ll gain expertise in two distinct business functions, all within a single undergraduate degree. You’ll start by studying economic theories so you understand what drives business decisions. Then, you’ll pair that knowledge with coursework in a non-financial discipline.

You can choose from 11 different concentrations within the Managerial Economics degree to learn how theoretical studies apply across business functions like law, marketing, human resources or information technology.
