B.S.B.A. in Business Economics

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: Business Economics

Scarcity and limitation. Supply and demand. Risks and rewards. Business economics is the study of the choices we make when faced with limited resources. It involves analyzing decisions made by firms and individuals, as well as government policy decisions dealing with unemployment, inflation, international trade, income distribution, government regulation, and money and banking systems.
