Economics @ NYU Stern UC

Economics provides the intellectual foundation for all business disciplines. Learning economics yields deep insights into fundamental concepts such as efficiency, markets, equilibrium, competition, cooperation, reputation, incentives, externalities, … It also endows professionals with technical knowledge which is in high demand in a variety of industries. What’s the revenue-maximizing auction for advertising on a social platform? Why does a decline in commodity prices tend to have dramatically different effects on emerging markets’ sovereign yields? These are only two among the uncountably many business questions you will be able to address by taking econ classes at Stern.
