Business Economics & Public Policy


  The Business Economics & Public Policy faculty is comprised of microeconomists with expertise in a variety of subject areas, including antitrust, environmental, franchising, health, industrial organization, labor, law and economics, personnel, productivity, transaction costs, transition economies, taxes, and many others. Our teaching mission in the MBA program is centered mostly in our core class offering, BE 502 (or 501 or 591 for the evening and GMBA programs respectively). We also offer several MBA electives each year, subject to faculty availability. These electives, which are geared to the needs of future entrepreneurs and managers, normally include a course on Game Theory and Competitive Tactics, another on the Growth and Stabilization of the Macroeconomic Environment, another on Managing the Workplace, and one on Tax Policy and Business. Please see below for links to a more complete list, and a grid of course offerings for the coming year.
