Economics falls within the Business Studies department at Midland College. The courses exist to prepare students for positions in local industries, in their careers in management, and administration positions in all types of organizations in the private, nonprofit, and public sectors.

Midland College offers no certificates or degrees in Economics. ECON 2301 (Macroeconomics) and ECON 2302 (Microeconomics) should transfer to other State-supported colleges and universities that offer degrees in Business Administration. They should also be accepted at institutions offering Baccalaureate degrees in Economics or with Economics emphasis. Be sure to verify transferability with the receiving institution.
