The Minor in Economic Policy is designed to prepare students for positions as economic and statistical analysts in policy and government organizations. The number of students pursuing a minor in business at the University of Nevada, Reno has been climbing rapidly in recent years, and for good reason. More students are realizing that with the option of a business minor, they can major in their principal academic interest, but also import real business knowledge that makes them attractive to employers. Earning a minor business degree also allows the student to stand out and be noticed. For example, a student with a B.S. in Political Science who also earns a Minor in Economics Policy not only has real knowledge about government policy and policy best practices, but also has the skills necessary to make well-reasoned and informed monetary policy decisions.
