BBA - Economics

  • Economics is the study of business firms; the functioning of regional, national, and global markets; and the development of analytical techniques that aid in decision making and understanding market behavior. The primary focus is on problem definition, model development, data gathering and analysis, model solution, and report generation in the areas of consumer behavior, business behavior, price determination, resource allocation, production and distribution of goods and services, and policies that affect output, employment, income, trade, growth, and inflation. There is a broad range of intellectual challenges within the economics major. Branches of Economics overlap such diverse areas as politics, finance, history, international business, management, marketing, business operations, and psychology.

    The program of study in economics prepares students for careers in management, marketing, business research, economic planning, and human resources with employers in industry, trade, banking, and government. Students are also well prepared for graduate study in economics, law, and business.

Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
