St. Bonaventure adds Economics to its suite of programs in School of Business

Mar 28, 2022

St. Bonaventure University has added a major in Economics to its suite of undergraduate programs in the School of Business.

Students will be accepted into the programs beginning this fall.

The Bachelor of Business Administration and Bachelor of Science degree programs are designed to help students examine the production and consumption of goods, and analyze real-world issues such as international trade, poverty, taxes, crime, and education.

The curriculums provide students with thorough training in theoretical and empirical approaches to real-world problems, and provides a framework in which to analyze human behavior.

“Students will graduate with the skills needed for successful careers in a wide range of fields, including finance, nonprofits, consulting, accounting, and government,” said Dr. Matrecia James, dean of the School of Business.

The programs will have two primary learning objectives for students:

  • To gain an understanding of core economic tools and principles and apply these tools to a wide range of current real-world issues.
  • To learn how to articulate pragmatic, principles-based policies to enhance social economic welfare and promote social justice.
