Is a minor in Business Economics right for me?

A minor in Business Economics is useful for explaining the economic environment for business decisions. It really helps future business professionals articulate policy recommendations that are congruent with the actual and projected economic environment of business operations. It is a good supplement for “operational” areas of business, such as accounting, finance, marketing, etc.

When should I declare a minor?
