Core Curriculum

All MIB students balance their education by taking a series of required core classes in addition to having the flexibility to pursue individual interests through elective classes. The core provides a foundation of skills and knowledge while the variety of electives allows students to customize their education to suit their own interests.

The economics requirement provides students with a solid foundation in microeconomics and macroeconomics as well as the analytical skills to better understand business in the global context. Students who have limited or no recall of economics should take an economic theory course prior to enrolling.

  • One microeconomics course: Managerial Economics* (1/2 credit) or Microeconomics (full credit)
  • Global Macroeconomics*


* An equivalence exam is offered. Students who pass either economics exam may take any higher level economics courses for a total of at least 1.5 economics credits at Fletcher.
