The constantly evolving business world requires successful leaders to possess an ever-increasing range of knowledge and skills. Alvernia's Economics program gives students the tools they need to access and utilize financial information and understand how markets operate. Developed with the input of faculty members with academic and practical business experience, Alvernia’s program teaches students how to think strategically while delving into vital topics such as accounting, marketing, business data and information analysis, business law, corporate finance, strategic management, international business and investment analysis.
Economics majors at Alvernia University’s Header School of Business will develop professional skills to help understand and forecast market trends, determine pricing policies for products and evaluate the impact of the economic environment on organizations' bottom lines. The learning experience expands far beyond textbooks, strengthened by a state-of-the-art business lab featuring the Bloomberg Terminal, and the O'Pake Institute for Economic Development and Entrepreneurship, which offers resources to students and businesses to assist with economic development.
