Mathematical Economics

Challenge yourself with complex material delivered in small-group environments, gaining skills ideal for graduate studies or for a career in government, banking, or business.

Mathematical Economics explores the complex and ever-changing economic dilemmas the world faces, examining the production and distribution of scarce resources. By combining core courses in economics and mathematics, you’ll learn how to analyze games of strategy, understand bargaining and auctions (game theory), make sense of complex economic data (econometrics), maximize profit and minimize costs (optimization) and augment happiness (welfare economics).
