The Economics Program consists of a community of economics scholars who are committed to OSU's mission of contributing to the economic, social, and environmental welfare of Oregon, the nation, and the world and to building excellent instructional research, and service programs that are competitive with those found at top 10 land grant universities in the U.S.
Program faculty include internationally recognized scholars who publish regularly in professional journals, serve on editorial and advisory boards, and consult with businesses, and government agencies at state, national and international levels. The faculty pursue research in a variety of fields, including macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, antitrust, economic development, health economics, industrial organization, international economics, labor economics, productivity analysis, public economies, and regulatory economics.
Two of our faculty members are listed in Who's Who in Economics, a distinction conferred on only the top 4 percent of published economists in the world.
