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 the United 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.
