The Economics Association is a club founded within the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics at California State University, Fullerton.
Within this community, we seek to expand our knowledge and understanding of the study of economics by keeping ties with our fellow students as well as faculty, alumni, and professionals in the industry.
At Mihaylo Hall, students are trained with a mix of theory and practice to prepare for the professional world of economics.
The Economics Association Club is funded by the BICC, which seeks to benefit student needs by providing funds towards community projects. By promoting community and student interaction, the BICC creates unity within Mihaylo College and promotes an expanded learning environment.
Economics is a fascinating study that helps develop analytical skills that are applicable to many careers. The Economic Association aims to raise a higher understanding of how economic principles, public policy, and the global economy is affected by economists.
Economic issues are powerful enough to shape the world. Slowly but surely, economic issues make their way to your pocketbook. Many pressing social issues have their roots in economics. Microeconomic principles set the foundation for business. Macroeconomic policies shape the destinies of nations.
According to the National Association of Business Economists (NABE), “The key skills of the economic analyst compared to other business analysts is the ability to link industry/market developments to the overall economy, i.e., to see the forest as well as the trees. The broad training of economists provides a flexibility that allows them to turn their hand to a broad range of analytical problems – a critical attribute in a company experiencing a redirection of industry interests.”
Students of economics find employment in national and multinational corporations, financial institutions, unions, all levels of government and agribusinesses. Economists participate in strategic pricing, cost analysis, marketing research, statistical forecasting and the evaluation of social programs.
