Students specialize in one of three options:

  1. Managerial Economics focuses on the economic aspects of managerial decision-making.
  2. Environmental and Resource Economics concentrates on issues related to the use of resources and environmental quality.
  3. Agricultural Economics focuses on the economic and policy aspects of production and marketing of foods and fibers. Students in the Managerial Economics program develop valuable skills and strengths that lead to careers in business and government.
