Economics and Business Accreditation seal AACSB

The Department of Economics and Business at VMI offers a rigorous and challenging liberal arts curriculum based on a solid foundation in economic theory, quantitative methods, and management-specific knowledge and skills.

An economics and business degree from VMI prepares you for almost any leadership position in the 21st Century. Our graduates are prepared to take on careers in finance, management, marketing, investment, banking, or the military. The EC/BU degree is excellent preparation for graduate work in economics, business, public administration, health administration, or law.

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business—International (AACSB) recently announced that the Department of Economics and Business has been awarded re-accreditation. Only 5 percent of the world’s business programs are accredited by AACSB.  Read additional information on this accomplishment (PDF).
