But my soccer teammates really brought me out and became like my family. Now, I meet new people all the time, and relationships grow from there."

Economics and Management

A Wells student majoring in economics and management is introduced to the fundamental mechanisms of how an economy works.

Individual and business decision-making is presented in a domestic and international context. The student may focus studies on either economics or management, although the two concentrations share some common course work. Students who choose either concentration may, if they wish, emphasize quantitative methods by taking a minor in mathematics or computer science. 



Understanding the structure and function of economic systems  
allows for intelligent assessment for their strengths and weaknesses. Utilizing  
theoretical and functional approaches, students begin to understand the problems  
and policies for each. 


Being an effective and appropriate manager takes more than  
intuition. Students will learn concepts and techniques needed to make  
appropriate administrative decisions and the economic and organizational  
contexts in which management decisions are made.
