Applied Mathematical Economics

Applied mathematical economics employs mathematics in the analysis of production, consumption and distribution. The use of mathematical techniques by business, government and industry in such areas as production planning, resource use, the design of communication networks and management decision-making is growing rapidly. These applications of mathematics have created many career opportunities for students who have both economic training and the necessary quantitative skills in mathematics, statistics, and computer science.

This interdisciplinary program provides a combination of courses to enhance employability by training quantitative economists who can step into research positions in government or business. In addition, prospects for admission to graduate school in economics (and related disciplines) are enhanced by a strong quantitative background.
