MBA Economics Concentration

The Economics concentration provides students tools to become more effective and agile decision-makers in a variety of business areas, including finance, technology, consulting, and marketing.

The Tepper School created a revolution in management science decades ago, and this revolution was, in part, spurred by the school’s leadership in the economics arena. Nobel-winning research conducted at the Tepper School deepened the debate surrounding societal and economic issues and reshaped public policy and markets, and hence the environment in which businesses operate.

We continue this tradition by conducting cutting-edge research that explains how individuals and economies operate and how policy changes, global competition, and innovation affect individual and firm choices and economic outcomes. The Economics concentration brings insights from these areas of study into the classroom:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Monetary policy
  • Global economics
  • Incentives
  • Market design
  • Monetary policy
  • Risk management
