Economics and Business Buildings

The fast-paced global economy of the 21st century demands innovative, forward-thinking leaders.

At R-MC, the economics major, business major and accounting major all place the broad perspectives offered by the liberal arts within the context of applied knowledge, preparing you to meet the challenges of the future.

Major Options

Economics major? Economics/Business major? Accounting? Our curriculum allows you to focus your interests or to bring them together with a double-major or combined major and minor. Independent study and study abroad are encouraged as well, and you may also choose an emphasis in international economics and business, with options to study abroad in Wroxton, England or complete an international business or economics internship as part of your coursework.

Practical Experience
