Strategy, Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy

Explore Our Faculty

The Strategy, Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy Area is dedicated to forging and disseminating an improved understanding of the firm and its interaction with the external environment beyond the market. Students are prepared for careers at the intersection of business and politics, regulation, and society.

The strategy, economics, ethics, and public policy faculty includes expertise in telecommunications policy, leadership, trade, and corporate social responsibility.

The area includes individuals whose primary research and teaching interests lie in economics, international business, international political economy, organizational theory and strategy.


The Strategy, Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy Area draws strength from multiple disciplines. We are home to economists, political scientists, strategists, organizational theorists, political philosophers, and ethicists. Our research interests include applied economic analysis, competitive and corporate strategy, economic and political analysis of public policy, international economics, political theory, and business ethics.

The area’s economic, political science, and strategy scholars have expertise and experience in a number of industries, including telecommunications, railroads, pharmaceuticals, electricity, cement, legal services, venture capital, private equity, semiconductors, and biopharmaceuticals, along with topical expertise and experience in regulation, antitrust, innovation, and international trade policy formation. The area’s political philosophers and ethicists explore both positive and normative elements of ethical behavior of managers and the ethical problems that arise in a regulated market economy (e.g., federal white-collar criminal law and enforcement policy).
