About The Program

As an economics major at LVC, you’ll study how societies produce, distribute, and consume goods and services. The comprehensive curriculum focuses on understanding business operations through instruction in economic theory, micro- and macroeconomics, comparative economic systems, and quantitative analytical methods.

You can tailor your studies to develop specialized knowledge and abilities, while putting theory into action through simulations (including a European Union simulation), case studies, and internship opportunities. The program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in government or the private sector, or for graduate school in business, economics, or law.
