Economics is the study of our expanding human needs and wants, of our increasingly elaborate economies, of our more complex production processes, and of the impact of increasingly intricate technologies, more refined skills, and greater trade.
In a world of ever increasing constrained resources, the study of Economics must also incorporate philosophic and moral precepts that more properly define the wants and desires of a person, business and community, conditions for material betterment, and value espousals to both better compete and collaborate for the common good.

What is accreditation and why does it matter? Business schools seek out accreditation to obtain quality assurance as an institution of higher learning, as well as to ensure an environment of continuous improvement. The Concordia School of Business chose to voluntarily undergo a rigorous process with IACBE to evaluate the effectiveness of our business programs resulting in Concordia University Irvine receiving IACBE accreditation through June 2023. One of the four program areas receiving accreditation is the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics. You can be assured that at Concordia, our goal is your academic and occupational success.
