Economics is a social science that reaches far beyond government policy and the stock market. It is the study of why people make the choices they make, and it is relevant to business decisions, government policies, and individual human lives. Students in this program can learn about the strategic behavior between firms, environmental issues and policy, poverty and discrimination, international trade, banking and finance, and more. The BBA in Economics blends theory, critical thinking, and analytical skills to give students a challenging and practical introduction to economics.
Our Economics program has been evaluated and accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs. The ACBSP determines the effectiveness of programs in preparing students for success in a business profession.
Why Economics at TLU?
Students studying economics may pursue internships in the community as well as professional experience while on campus. Students may wish to pledge the local chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, a national business fraternity that is highly active around campus. Business honor society Delta Mu Delta also has a chapter at Texas Lutheran University. These organizations offer a variety of social and service opportunities to economics majors. There are also many opportunities throughout the year to get involved in economics-focused research projects alongside TLU faculty, who are experts in the field and the university also offers a minor in economics.
