Managerial Economics and Strategy

Degree Types: PhD

The Doctoral Program in Managerial Economics and Strategy (MECS) is devoted to the study of individual, firm, and political decision making in economic environments. The program is characterized a combination of methods and insights drawn from economic theory, the theory of the firm, and game theory.

The program emphasizes the use of mathematical models and analytic reasoning to solve theoretical and empirical problems in management and economics. It should appeal to those interested in studying individual decision makers and firms who have an aptitude for analytical thinking, mathematical modeling, and formal analysis.

The program is small and selective and prepares students for research careers in economics, political economy, and strategy.

The program is a joint effort between Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences (MEDS) and Management and Strategy (M&S) in the Kellogg School of Management. Both departments are recognized globally as intellectual centers in their field.
