Mission

Economics is the study of making better decisions regarding the allocation of resources, time, and technology to achieve the best possible outcomes at the individual, organization, national and international levels. Economists provide critical skills in the management of monetary systems, investments, public policy, banking, and legal issues. Recent studies identify a bachelor’s degree in economics as the best preparation for Law School in terms of lifetime earnings of practicing lawyers.

The Economics Program at Missouri Southern offers two track options: One in Business Economics (BSBA) and one in General Economics (BS). The Business Economics track requires students to complete the core classes required for all business majors, whereas the General Economics track allows students to concentrate on Economics, and then choose additional areas of study either in business, or in other areas of social science, public policy, environmental sciences and virtually any other combination of disciplines that are of interest to the student.
