Management Economics (MNEC)

Department of Economics, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences.

The study of Management Economics provides a suitable education for a career in the business world or in the public service, and it also constitutes a useful preparation for more advanced study, including graduate work in economics, business administration, law and public policy. The programs below combine the analytical orientation of economics with basic skills in accounting, finance and marketing and insights gained from the social and physical sciences. Students interested in a more detailed study of economics should consult the calendar entry under that title in the B.A. degree, while students interested in a more detailed management program should consult the entry under Management Economics in the B.Comm. degree.

These programs are administered by the Department of Economics and students are urged to consult departmental advisors. An up to date program planning guide is available at the Department of Economics. Students are advised to note that most courses carry prerequisites. Prerequisites not listed in the program cannot be counted towards the specializations.

Note: students who major in Management Economics who fail a required course in the program twice will not be permitted to continue in the major.
