Our Graduate Economics program has a long history of preparing students for careers in academia, government and the private sector. The program has over 40 graduate faculty members from both Poole College of Management and College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, providing a variety of fields of specialization including agricultural economics, development economics, econometrics, environmental and resource economics, industrial organization, international economics, labor economics, macro-monetary economics and microeconomic theory and experimental/behavioral economics.
