In Business Economics, students learn the art and science of collecting and analyzing economic data for use in planning and problem solving. The Business Economics major at Penn State Erie is a quantitative-based program that combines the in-depth study of economics with a solid foundation in the business practices of accounting, finance, management, management information systems, marketing, and quantitative business analysis.

Business Economics majors can further tailor the major to their interests and goals by concentrating on one of three supporting areas of study: quantitative methods, international studies or a foreign language, or education abroad. The quantitative methods supporting area is designed for students planning to pursue graduate study; the other supporting areas most often are pursued by students interested in international business.

Students can also pursue a Multiple Major in Business Economics and Finance.
