Business Economics Option Program

The BEOP allows economics majors to take a set of accounting and finance courses at UT's McCombs School of Business for completion of a minor in Business Administration or Accounting or Finance. By taking accounting and finance classes alongside business majors, BEOP students explore complementaries between economic analysis and business, thereby strengthening the quantitative and analytical skills they acquire as economic majors. Upon completion, students receive a letter of recognition from the Economics Department.

To be eligible for the Business Economics Option Program, you must:

  • be a declared Economics major
  • have a UT cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher
  • have an Economics GPA of 3.00 or higher (based on Economics courses taken at UT)
  • have earned a grade of C minus or better in ECO 420K

There is no deadline to apply. Submit applications after ALL eligibility requirements have been met to the Department of Economics Undergraduate Advising Center in person at BRB 1.114, by fax 512-471-3510, or email
