Through the Department of Economics, the Richard T. Doermer School of Business offers programs in business economics and public policy.  The Bachelor of Science in Business (B.S.B.) program is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

The business economics program explores the economic environments in which businesses must operate, as well as the interrelationships among micro- and macroeconomic conditions, private-sector decision making, and governmental programs. Students have opportunities to study economic problems and their alternative solutions.  Students may also study aspects of employment, inflation, international  trade, and other economics subject areas.

The finance program is composed of courses that have been selected to familiarize students with the theory, instruments, and institutions of finance, and with a financial approach for structuring and analyzing management decisions.  The study of finance provides a basis for careers in corporate financial management, as well as executive positions in commercial banking, savings and credit institutions, and the investment field.
