Business Economics - ARCHIVE

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (BECON)

Business Economics is a quantitatively-oriented program of study in applied economics. Leading to a B.S. degree, this major combines in-depth study of economics with a general business background, the latter including courses in accounting, finance, management, management information systems, marketing, and quantitative business analysis. Students may choose upper-division economics courses in business and economic forecasting, econometrics, economic theory, industrial organization, international economics, labor economics, managerial economics, and urban and regional economics. Use of computers as analytical and problem-solving tools is emphasized in the program. The major also includes several non-business supporting areas of study from which students may choose courses.

For the B.S. Degree in Business Economics, a minimum of 122 credits is required.

Each student enrolled in this major must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course.
