Whether you are considering a major in economics, already in the program, or just browsing our site, the links on this page will connect you to a wide range of information regarding our department.
On July 1, 2011 Cornell took the extraordinary step of creating an expanded and improved Economics Department. The new department is jointly funded by the College of Arts & Sciences and the School of Industrial & Labor Relations, and consists of all members of the former Economics and Labor Economics Departments as well as a set of distinguished senior faculty from around campus. The faculty list can be seen here.
The department starts from a position of substantial strength. Having a fuller spectrum of economic perspectives will produce even richer research experiences and classroom opportunities. Economics at Cornell will be an increasingly strong draw for top faculty and students.
