If you're interested in a career in international business,
general business or economics, you need to check out UT
Martin's major in economics.
A major in economics offers students a solid foundation
in economic theory and application while providing a diverse
background in business administration. Students in our
economics program have classes in all areas of business
- economics, accounting, marketing, management, finance,
computer technology, business law and international business.
The economics option develops students' quantitative skills
and affords them the flexibility to study a wide variety
of liberal arts subjects as well. Students who pursue
this option are very well prepared to assume positions
in banking, management, financial management and various
government positions. The economics option also prepares
students to enter graduate studies or law school.
In addition to the pure economics major, you can
choose a concentration in either Finance or International Business.
Concentration in General Business
The general business concentration provides students
with the flexibility to choose from electives in accounting,
finance, marketing, management or information systems
that best fit their chosen career paths.
Concentration in International Business
The international business concentration exposes students
to a wide variety of business courses including economics,
finance, marketing and management. Special emphasis is
given to international business principles, cultural diversity
and comparative economic systems. A foreign language is
available for students who choose this concentration.
A solid background in international business prepares
students for various career opportunities with companies
in theUnited States and corporations abroad.
Regardless of the option you choose, you will receive
expert instruction from a highly qualified faculty with
diverse business backgrounds. You will also gain valuable,
real-world practical experience through our internship
and cooperative education programs. These programs help
facilitate students' abilities to transfer classroom learning
into a practical and rewarding real-world experience.
