Business Economics

The business economics major is designed to meet the needs of women who seek careers in business, government, or nonprofit organizations. The program prepares students for positions in fields such as finance, banking, economic analysis, securities trading, insurance, management consulting, and government regulation.

Students of business economics are afforded the opportunity to study and to develop an understanding of the goals, operation, and management of business firms. In addition, they develop analytic and technical skills useful in solving business problems. Students are encouraged to enroll in mathematics courses and to develop their written and oral communication skills. Mills' location in the San Francisco Bay Area provides opportunities for internships with major corporations and financial institutions, as well as with federal, state, and local government agencies.

Mills College’s innovative Bachelor’s-to-Master’s Accelerated Degree Programs allow you to earn a master’s degree in one additional year of study. Combining a master’s degree with a liberal arts undergraduate education prepares you for career success and increased options upon graduation. Mills students in this major should consider one of these options:
