Areas of Study
Business Economics & Public Policy
In Business Economics & Public Policy (BEPP), we train doctoral students in the application of micro- and macroeconomic analysis to economic and public policy issues. Our faculty members regularly publish the leading journals in economics.
Their expertise includes:
- industrial organization
- government-business relationships
- managerial economics
- forecasting and applied econometrics
- macroeconomic theory and policy
- domestic and international monetary economics
At BEPP, our primary objective is to give students a rigorous grounding in the economic theory of industrial economics and business strategy, and our students leave the program as economists well-trained in these areas.
Economists with the level and type of training we provide are in high demand. In addition to successful academic careers at top universities, our students acquire the necessary training to pursue jobs at government regulatory agencies, banking institutions, and prestigious consulting firms.
