Business Economics Program Description
The Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Business Economics is being developed to offer a discreet major that fits within the much larger context of curricular renewal at Loyola.&nbsp; The BBA degree in Business Economics applies the tools of economics to the study of business problems. BBA degree majors are required to take a set of business foundation courses in addition to a selection of economics courses that are directly applicable to the analysis of business issues. <br> <br>Under the new structure there will be two majors: a B.A. offered through the College of Arts and Sciences and a BBA in Business Economics offered through the Sellinger School.&nbsp; Creating a separate major in Business Economics will allow the BBA – Business Economics concentration to become more transparent and increase opportunities for students. Specifically, it will make recruitment and advising more straightforward.
