Economics

The Economics minor at Avila

With Avila’s Economics minor, you’ll gain an advanced understanding of economic, legal and interpersonal environments in the workplace. You’ll take advanced coursework in micro- and macroeconomics, banking, international economics, banking and others, ensuring you’ll graduate knowing how these principles and concepts support modern businesses and organizations.

Complementary to many other programs at Avila, the Economics minor will help you stack your skills so that you’ll stand out from the crowd when you graduate. Avila’s teaching model is built on decades of professional and academic experience and individualized instruction—you’ll work one on one with your professors, not just some TA. And with interdisciplinary and critical thinking increasingly prized in the workforce, you’ll be prepared for whatever works throws your way.
