Purpose Statement
 
The primary mission of the economics certificate program in the W. A. Franke College of Business (FCB) is to train these students to successfully employ economic theory and concepts to real-world problems through the developing of analytical and quantitative skills in order for them to succeed in their professional and academic endeavors.  Recipients of the economics certificate will learn how to think like an economist by developing analytical and quantitative skills in identifying the essential elements of a problem and finding solutions.  They explore topics from pricing strategy and cost-benefit analysis to monetary and fiscal policy impact and international trade.  The certificate program provides students with a complementary skill set for the major they have chosen as their career path.  In addition, the economics certificate program also serves FCB business degree programs and Liberal Studies through our curriculum. The curriculum for business and Liberal Studies students focuses on essential concepts and principles of economics in order to help students understand, think, and form opinions about, and develop responses to local, national, and global economic issues.
