What is economic consulting?
As business becomes increasingly influenced by governmental rules, regulations, and policies, business economics and public policy analysis are playing a bigger role in managerial decision-making in the United States and abroad. The economic consulting track trains students in forecasting techniques and in the application of micro- and macroeconomics to the problems of business.
