Economics is a fundamental discipline that provides the foundation for other areas of study, such as finance, strategy, marketing and operations. Economic research provides critical insights into all aspects of business and public policy.
Faculty members in the Business Economics and Public Policy area are experts in a wide range of topics including economic organization and contracting, antitrust, regulation, energy, environmental policy and sustainability, international trade and finance, developing economies, entrepreneurship, taxation and healthcare. Courses in this area help students apply the rigor of economic logic to understand consumer behavior, firm strategy and the impact of public policies on individuals, organizations, and social welfare.
