It is necessary for business professionals to understand corporate behavior, business decision-making and the effects of government policy on the marketplace. The economics concentration at Geneva College prepares students to think critically about economic policies and enables them to develop a strong theoretical understanding of economics.
The curriculum of the program is designed to familiarize students with principles of economics such as market structure, supply and demand, production and other fiscal matters. Students learn how to analyze and interpret financial data and apply this knowledge to current economic issues. Graduates with an economics concentration are qualified for careers in finance, insurance, government and more, and are also well-prepared to pursue an M.B.A. or other graduate studies.
In addition to the Geneva and business core requirements, students with an economics concentration will take the following courses:
An internship or independent study may be substituted for one of the above concentration courses with the approval of the concentration lead faculty member.
For more information about the economics concentration, please contact Associate Professor of Economics and economics concentration lead faculty member, Dr. Ralph Ancil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students have opportunities for enrichment and networking through Geneva’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter.
