Economics Degree

Auburn Montgomery's degree in Economics provides students with a solid foundation in economic analysis and prepares students for careers in business, financial institutions and the public sector. In addition, the curriculum prepares students for graduate or professional schools in business, law, economics, international studies and other related fields of study. 

After students finish taking the required Core Curriculum, the student in the business economics program is offered two options of study with related but unique cur­ricula: business economics and international business studies option.
