Department of Economics, Finance, and International Business

The economy has always had a major effect on our lives, but the public interest in economics is a more recent phenomenon, fueled in part by the Internet and instant access to the stock market. Economic news is now front-page news and the topic of best-selling books. It affects our jobs, our mortgage rates and interest rates, our investments and our ability to purchase goods.

Financial concerns are another part of nearly all organizational decisions, whether the organization is a business firm, non-profit organization or government. For that reason, financial executives are of central important to overall planning and control. Even non-financial executives must know enough finance to effectively oversee financial concerns within their areas of expertise.

In addition, as a consequence of the high rate of global integration and increasing levels of political instability worldwide, it is imperative that firms hire knowledgeable professionals who are able to navigate the complex global economic landscape if they are to prosper.
