Economics & Management Science Major
In today's business environment, acquiring and analyzing timely and accurate business data is essential for successful management decision-making. The Economics and Management Science (EMS) major is designed to meet the need for professionals with well-developed analytical and model-building skills. The EMS major also prepares you for graduate studies in a variety of business and economic fields.
The EMS major has a double focus: economic analysis and quantitative skills. The principles and methods of economic analysis are applicable to many types of enterprises, including private sector firms, public utilities, government agencies and non-profit organizations. In addition, proficiency in the processing of all sorts of quantitative data is expected of managers with the vast amounts of information now available as a consequence of advances in computer technology. Production, marketing, finance, and research and development produce huge amounts of quantitative data. Making the best use of information depends upon the technical skills of management and the staff who support their decision-making function.
