Business, Economics, and Management Option

The business, economics, and management (BEM) option (i.e., major) provides Caltech students with the analytical tools to operate successfully in a modern and volatile business environment. The emphasis is on finance, design of institutions (such as markets, organizations, and networks), and strategy in a free-market competitive or strategic situation, or in a politicized setting. Because today's business environment is complex, the required courses in this option are highly analytical and often complemented by case studies.

BEM faculty have a range of backgrounds in such fields as economics, political science, mathematics, psychology, and law. As a result, courses go beyond the content found in traditional business administration programs. Graduating from Caltech with a BEM option gives students the interdisciplinary education and training they need to establish successful careers as leaders and entrepreneurs in many fields, including management, consulting, technology, and banking.
