The Hood College Department of Economics and Business Administration offers two bachelor of arts degrees — economics and business administration — plus the master of business administration (MBA.) degree. The department offers courses and programs of study that are concerned with people in various social and organizational contexts.


Students who have majored in economics and business administration have entered careers in business and industry, as well as social and governmental agencies. While there are required courses in both undergraduate majors, there is flexibility in selecting elective courses. Students select concentrations of courses that focus on specific education and career interests, and they may even pursue a double major when it serves their career needs.


The graduate program in business administration is designed to increase career mobility and to improve management skills for those in, or seeking to enter, management positions.


The economics and business administration faculty represent a variety of backgrounds, including economic theory, economic development, environmental economics and environmental policy, applied economics, finance, accounting, public administration, marketing, international business, human resources, industrial labor, organization theory and strategic management.
