This exciting accelerated degree program offers a 21st century alternative to traditional business education. Designed for today’s interdependent world where economic forces operate in an increasingly complex business environment the 5-year program combines an undergraduate education in economics with a comprehensive MBA preparation in management, marketing, finance and world business. Upon graduation, students will be uniquely equipped for careers in investment banking, international trade and supply chain management.

To further their understanding of international economics, global economic forces and international business planning, students have the option of studying abroad for a junior-year semester at LIU Global’s center in China.

The B.A. in Economics/MBA draws on the strengths of LIU Post's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences renowned for its economics offerings and LIU Post’s College of Management, which is one of the elite 5 percent of MBA programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and is regularly listed in The Princeton Review’s Best Business Schools.
