At ENMU we offer several emphasis programs for our Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. Emphasis areas for the BBA are available in:

Applied Economics and Finance

Do you ever wonder why are some countries rich and some countries poor, or what happened in 2008 to cause the worst recession since the 1930s? Are you interested in why income and wealth become more unequally distributed over the past few decades? As your parents age, do you wonder how the population aging will affect life in the coming decades? If you have known someone whose job has been replaced with an automated system, do you wonder how the workforce will change with advances in robotics, automation and artificial intelligence? The American Economic Association says these are questions that economists can study and find answers to. If you want to be part of finding those answers, a Bachelor of Business Administration with an emphasis in applied economics and finance is an excellent starting point.
