Business Economics

Financial and business skills to take you to the next level

Combining research, pricing, marketing, financial analysis, and forecasting, the Louisiana Tech business economics program blends business skills with economic theories and principles, preparing you to build strong, successful businesses, banks, non-profits, and policies. With a focus on developing strong analytical, quantitative, and critical thinking skills, our program serves as an excellent foundation if you are pursuing a graduate degree in public administration, business administration, or law. Students have the opportunity to develop research questions related to micro and macro economics and present their findings at a variety of forums including the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank.


Without the help of my advisors and professors in Economics and Finance, I would have faced a great deal of uncertainty on the path ahead. They were instrumental to me both inside and outside the classroom to make sure I was prepared for the Economics Ph.D. program I am entering. The level of hands-on assistance and individual focus I received as a business student can only be found at school like Louisiana Tech.

REAL Report 

The Regional Economic Analysis of Louisiana (REAL) Report is a quarterly publication designed to provide insight into recent economic developments in Louisiana. It is produced by faculty and students within Louisiana Tech University’s College of Business for the state of Louisiana and our region of the South. This report is compiled by undergraduate economics majors in partial fulfillment of their Regional Economic Analysis course (ECON 425). Economics students from the College of Business specifically provide strong analytical and critical thinking skills to a growing North Louisiana region. Undergraduate economics majors, as they progress through their degree program, not only learn economic intuition and modeling skills, but also data science and statistics.
