The Olin Business Economics faculty members have a special interest in empirical and theoretical industrial organization. Research pursuits cover a wide range of subjects including industry studies, incentives in organizations, organizational design, health economics and the determinants of industry structure. The Center for Research in Economics and Strategy (CRES) engages PhD students in research that advances the understanding of firms and markets by examining substantive questions and employing state-of-the-art analytical and/or empirical models.
Olin PhD students studying Business Economics frequently collaborate with the Department of Economics in Arts & Sciences at Washington University.
