WELCOME TO APPLIED ECONOMICS AND STATISTICS
Applied Economics and Statistics is concerned with agribusiness management, food marketing, the economics of environmental and resource management, and statistics.
Applied Economics courses are designed to provide a thorough background in the principles of organization and management of agribusiness firms, and includes study of financing agricultural business firms, marketing and international trade of agricultural products, price analysis, environmental economics, economics of land use, and agricultural and environmental policies.
Our mission is to cultivate learning and develop and share knowledge that benefits society. Our focus is to advance economics and statistics methods and theories, and apply them to various subjects, such as health, agriculture, natural resources, the environment, and data science.
