Economics & Finance

Program Information
Business University of America is committed to providing a strong undergraduate program in Economics and Finance that teaches students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the workplace. In addition, the program is designed to produce well-rounded global citizens who can function effectively and ethically in society. Economics studies the ways in which societies allocate their scarce resources among various alternatives and the consequences of these decisions. The field of Finance, in turn, is concerned with how investment decisions are made by corporations and financial intermediaries and how financial markets operate locally and globally. The areas of inquiry in the economics and finance program include money and banking, international trade and finance, labor-market analysis, the study of emerging markets, and public finance, among others.
