The main difference between a business degree and an economics degree is how they prepare you for a future career. Business degrees allow you to study how to do business. You often learn skills such as communication and leadership. However, there are also programs that enable you to focus on accounting, finance, conflict resolution, and supply chain management. Depending on your business interest, you can find programs that are very specific.
An economics degree studies more of the consumption and production of goods in a society. These degrees are actually more versatile than business degrees. The tools that you learn in economics includes more math, statistics, research and economic trends. Those that earn this degree can enter into a variety of career fields, including business, political science, mathematics, psychology, finance, and many more.
Either field is a great opportunity. However, it is best to first determine what you want to do with your degree and then decide which one is the better match.
