Applied Economics

Faculty

Members of the faculty in the MIT Sloan Applied Economics Group are exploring vital economic issues through leading-edge research like The Billion Prices Project, which uses prices collected daily from hundreds of online retailers around the world to conduct economic research. We also participate in interdisciplinary, cross-university initiatives like The E2e Project, which brings together economic and energy experts to understand the energy efficiency gap.

In the classroom, faculty delve deep into subjects including economic analysis for business decisions, international and applied macroeconomics, health economics, game theory for strategic advantage, big data and metrics for managers and, soon, the business of the poor. Please see the course catalog for additional information.
