Economics, Applied Statistics, and International Business

The Department of Economics, Applied Statistics, and International Business offers a variety of degrees. At the undergraduate level, we offer bachelors of business administration in economics and in international business, and a bachelor of arts in economics. We also offer minors in economics and international business.

At the graduate level, we offer a master of science in applied statistics. In conjunction with the Department of Agricultural Economics, we offer a master of arts in economics and a doctor of economic development.

This program is especially suitable for students who find economics interesting and who intend, perhaps without additional formal education beyond a bachelor's degree, to take jobs in business or government. This degree prepares you for a wide variety of jobs including those leading eventually to positions of executive responsibility. It is also appropriate for those who may choose to seek a Master of Business Administration degree after graduation.  Click here for more information
Businesses and government agencies need employees who are knowledgeable about foreign trade, balance of payments, management, finance and global marketing. Business transactions frequently involve a payer in one nation and a payee in another. Investment and lending are also international in character.

You can “declare” a minor while pursuing your degree (your major). A minor can add versatility to your knowledge, skills and abilities. Some students prepare for their intended career with their major while pursuing personal interests with a minor. Other students pursue their major and declare a minor to specialize in a subject and make themselves more attractive to employers.

The discipline of statistics is concerned with the processes by which data are collected and inferences are drawn from these data. Statistical methodology finds use in a wide variety of disciplines: social science, natural science, and applied sciences such as agriculture, engineering, business, and medicine. Our program is designed to produce graduates who are proficient in the current practices of statistics, and able to enter directly into positions in industry, government, or private business.

NMSU is the first university in the country to offer this program. The Doctor of Economic Development (DED) is a professional degree primarily intended to provide advanced applied training for economic development professionals (rather than academic economists), and can be seen as the link between academic research in economic development and real world economic development problems.
