ECONOMICS PROGRAM

The study of economics centers on understanding how the market system works by analyzing how consumers, business, and government interact. The Economics major is an excellent vehicle for developing students’ analytical and critical thinking skills and is therefore very good general preparation for careers in business, finance, and government, and graduate or law school. The mission of the Economics program at Baker University is to:

  1. Create a community of lifelong learners committed to a rigorous academic experience that builds on and contributes to the liberal arts tradition. 

  2. Promote appropriate learning opportunities that enable students to apply economic theory and analytical tools in real-world settings.

  3. Fostertheapplicationoftherationalapproachtoinformethicaldecisionmakingandproblem solving in the context of interconnected global markets.

Each area has a set of 10 committee members engaging the department or program to be supported. If committee positions are open, the Wildcats for Education Committee is looking for more enthusiastic alumni and friends of Baker University fo foster the liberal arts in these targeted ways.
