The economics area includes faculty that study a broad range of topics in their discipline, including economic theory, industrial organization, labor economics, macroeconomics, econometrics, environmental economics, and international trade.

The economic faculty bring the ideas from economic research (both their own and from the broader community of economic scholars) to the GSB classroom. The group teaches principles of economics and statistics in Managerial Foundations classes, as well as applications of economics in classes on Strategy, Public Policy, Human Resource Management, Global Management, and other topics.

The rigorous application of economic principles permeates the MBA, Stanford MSx, and Executive Education curricula. The economics area extends its impact beyond Stanford through publishing, by educating PhD students, and by influencing public policy.
