Hello! My name is Anna, and I am the Business and Entrepreneurship Librarian in Mullins Library. I am your go-to librarian for all things business, connecting you to our library's services and collections. I am here to build and promote the library’s business collection, as well as support students and faculty in all their business research needs. If you need assistance please send me an email or schedule a research appointment with me.

This research guide was designed as a starting point for library resources. Browse through the tabs on the left to discover resources, find information, and learn how to research in business disciplines. 

Economics for Non-Business Majors

You’re not an economics major so why study economics?

Familiarity of economics helps you understand businesses, markets, and governments. It offers you the opportunity to anticipate market threats, jump on terrific opportunities, make good decisions, and develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills in a changing business landscape.

This guide exists to bridge the gap between your primary field of study and the economic theories, methodologies, and data you may need to engage with for interdisciplinary research, assignments, or to broaden your academic and practical understanding of economics as it relates to your major. 

The purpose of this guide is to: 

  • Demystify Economics
  • Support Interdisciplinary Studies
  • Facilitate Research

Non business majors researching economics have unique research needs such as: 

  • Curating Foundational Knowledge
  • Discovering Data Sources
  • Applying Economic Theory in Relevant Disciplines

Additional Resources

In addition to library resources, students, staff, and faculty members of Walton College of Business have access to databases maintained by Walton College.
