The Economics Minor provides students with an opportunity to acquire a general knowledge of the operation of economic systems and institutions, as well as the quantitative tools necessary for analytical research and thought. At least 9 credits of economics courses in the minor must be completed in residency at MSU Denver. Business majors who choose the Economics Minor will have ECO 2010 and ECO 2020 waived from the College of Business and departmental requirements. A grade of “C-” or better must be earned in each course required for the minor. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required.
