Study business economics at UWF and prepare for a successful career in a complex and rapidly changing global economy. You will get a solid foundation in how markets function and hands-on experience in managerial decision-making.

Why Study Business Economics at UWF?

Our B.S.B.A. in Business Economics program focuses on economics as it applies to business and government organizations.

We will provide you with a comprehensive view of the area of economics in business, training you to apply a set of analytical tools to understand the interrelations between the economy and the business environment under different market conditions.

This major provides outstanding preparation for the Master of Business Administration degree, law school or graduate study in economics.

What You Will Learn

We offer two specializations: global economics and comprehensive economics. You will need to complete the Lewis Bear Jr. College of Business Core courses and the Economics Core courses.

You will actively participate in small projects, such as data analysis and forecasting, gaining hands-on experience in managerial decision-making. Specific topics include health care, crime, finance, production, international trade, labor, taxation, politics, the environment, pricing strategies, regulation and deregulation, data analysis and forecasting.

We provide numerous internship opportunities, which offer real-world application of your classroom learning. You will develop the technical and analytical skills needed for policy-oriented decisions in local and global markets.

The Lewis Bear Jr. College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, known as AACSB International, something fewer than 4.7% of business schools worldwide can say.

A minor in business economics covers principles of financial accounting and principles of economics.

UWF programs offered at the Pensacola campus or UWF Emerald Coast may require online courses. Please discuss the program requirements and planning with your academic advisor.


You will focus on economic issues in an increasingly global business environment. One of the highlights of this specialization is a semester abroad at a UWF partner university studying international economics.

It offers a great deal of flexibility in the types of electives you take, allowing you to earn a minor in virtually any field in which you could pursue a career that applies your business and economics knowledge.
