The Economics and Business Department introduces its students to the principles of economics, business, and accounting within the context of the liberal arts tradition. From introductory courses in economic principles to specialized courses in finance, tax, and business policy, students are taught to analyze, to synthesize, and to look at alternative approaches.
As a result, graduates are prepared to deal effectively with varied economic and business issues. They are also prepared to view society through the prism of several areas of study, including literature, philosophy, history, mathematics, and the sciences.
In short, the department prepares its graduates to be literate, competent, and sensitive individuals who are capable of making significant contributions to society as a whole, as well as to a specific employer. With respect to employment, graduates should be able to move rapidly upward in their careers as a result of their rigorous and broadly based education at Randolph-Macon. The department offers majors in Accounting, Economics, and Economics/Business as well as minors in Accounting and Economics.For information about the programs and faculty in the department, please use the navigate through our site and feel free to contact any member of the department with questions you may have.
