The Department of Economics at the University of Memphis is a nationally recognized department that combines rigor in research productivity with excellence in teaching and student service. We believe strongly in pushing forward the boundaries of our knowledge of the economic world via research and scholarship, as well as sharing our insights with the students of the University of Memphis, that we might prepare the next generation of economists and scholars. Members of our faculty have published in top journals in many areas of economics and have won university and national recognition for their teaching and research.
