Whether you pursue an advanced degree in business, law, or economics, or combine the major with another to prepare you for a different career path, you’ll have an understanding of how business, industries, governments, and countries interrelate to prepare you for an entry level position as a business analyst, financial analyst, market researcher, or public policy researcher. With an advanced degree, you would be prepared to become an economist.
