Managerial Economics

The Department of Resource Economics tackles complex questions about how to use environmental, natural, and human resources. By researching important societal problems and gathering and analyzing data, the major offers policy solutions that move the needle on today’s most pressing issues. As of fall 2019, the department offers a new program, a Bachelor of Science in Managerial Economics. Resource and Managerial Economics examines how firms and consumers make production, consumption, and investment choices.

Welcome to the Managerial Economics Community

Managerial Economics is an applied field of economics that concentrates on the application of economic principles and quantitative techniques to study business decision making. Students develop expertise in accounting, finance, business strategies, and market demand analysis. Microeconomic models and case studies are used to demonstrate how an individual can make wise choices to operate effectively within a complex economy of millions of businesses linked by thousands of markets. Although most graduates accept jobs immediately after completing their degree, the program also provides excellent preparation for graduate school in Resource Economics, Economics, Public Policy, and Business Administration.
