Business economics, a specialization option in the economic sciences major, trains students to use economic concepts to better understand the management, marketing, labor, and finance problems faced by businesses operating in a market system.
Students combine course work in economic sciences with courses outside the school of economic sciences according to their individual interests, supplementing their economic sciences training with elective course work in the areas of business, agriculture, mathematics, history, and political science.
- Signature courses
A few of the core courses that define the business economics curriculum:
Money and Banking
Business Finance Economics
Business Management Economics
See the WSU Catalog for degree requirements and talk with your academic advisor about planning and scheduling your courses. All students must meet requirements as outlined in the catalog in order to graduate.
- Scholarships and financial aid
A variety of state, federal, and university-sponsored programs are available to help students with educational costs. Washington State University awards millions of dollars in financial aid and scholarships to students every year based on financial need, academic merit, or a combination of the two.
Students should complete the Washington State University general scholarship application and the FAFSA to ensure their eligibility for the widest range of scholarships and need-based financial aid.
For information or to apply for financial aid and scholarships from WSU, see the Scholarships and Finances section of the WSU website.
