The Minor in Microeconomics of Strategic Analysis (MESA) provides students a 15-hour economics concentration to learn strategic decision making designed around microeconomic theory.

Students will not only learn core microeconomic theory, but also advanced micro theory concepts and tools pertaining to the economics of strategic decision-making, including game theory, industrial organization, behavioral economics, network economics, and the economics of information.

These are well-established fields of theoretical microeconomics that have applications in key sectors including (but not limited to) manufacturing, marketing, health, computer science, and business.
