International University Alliance
Campus September 2017 USA Boston

Economics is the study of how individuals, businesses, governments, and societies make decisions concerning the use and distribution of resources, such as time, money, and skills. It is the central science underlying business and public policies. [+]

Economics - Primary Track Why are prices going up? Why are some products harder to get? These everyday questions, and others like them, are what economists try to answer. Economics is the study of how individuals, businesses, governments, and societies make decisions concerning the use and distribution of resources, such as time, money, and skills. It is the central science underlying business and public policies. A B.S. in Economics emphasizes a broad understanding of how consumers' and producers' behavior is influenced by certain events—such as changes in interest rates, changes in prices, and new government regulations. The Department of Economics offers two program tracks. The primary track allows students to choose their own outside minor to complement their study of economics and advance their career goals. Political science, finance, business administration, and foreign languages are some of the common choices for an outside minor. The quantitative track is a specialized program designed to prepare students for graduate education in economics. An education in economics prepares students for employment in a wide variety of jobs—including banking, real estate, insurance, financial management, sales, and public administration—and serves as an excellent foundation from which to pursue law school or other advanced degree work.

Marian University

Our flexible program allows you to choose whether you accumulate the 150 hours over eight, nine, or ten semesters. Most universities tell you that you will spend ten semesters at their university to accumulate the 150 credit hours. [+]

Bachelor in Accounting Hands On Accounting Many of the accounting students at Marian University choose to take the CPA Exam.Students from any university must accumulate 150 credit hours before they take the exam. Here is the difference at Marian. Our flexible program allows you to choose whether you accumulate the 150 hours over eight, nine, or ten semesters. Most universities tell you that you will spend ten semesters at their university to accumulate the 150 credit hours. You will work with an accounting adviser to develop a plan that allows you to choose eight, nine, or ten semesters to graduate with an accounting degree and be eligible to take the CPA Exam. Another difference is that Marian University offers a full-time accounting internship in which students earn twelve credits. Internships are typically with accounting firms during the spring semester. Why are twelve credits important? The students in our full-time accounting internship program are full-time students for financial aid, insurance, and on campus living requirements. So, our students in the full-time accounting internships do not take any other classes and are able to: 1. Concentrate on this outstanding opportunity to learn from experienced professionals; 2. Travel if their work assignments require; and 3. Work overtime to help their firm deal with the period when the firm faces its highest volume of work. An added advantage for Marian accounting students is that they do not interrupt their living arrangements during the academic year, since many full-time internships exist in the Indianapolis area....
