Experiential components of the B.B.A. in Business Economics program include:
Economics Internship (ECON 4941)
This research internship allows students to develop their analytical thinking skills by applying classroom concepts to a real social problem. The first four weeks are lecture-based and expose students to research methods and analytics tools. Students work with their assigned faculty mentors for the remainder of the semester. In addition to bi-weekly reports, students submit a research paper and present their findings at the end of the course.
