Managerial Economics and Organizational Sciences is an interdepartmental, nonprofessional program designed to provide undergraduates with an understanding of the environment in which businesses and other organizations exist today and of some of the tools employed by management in the commitment of its financial and human resources.

Housed and overseen by the Economics department, the Managerial Economics and Organizational Sciences (MEOS) major exposes students to the broader contexts of business and management, via required courses in economics, political science, and psychology. The major thus serves the purpose of deep exposure to the field of management, within the framework of a broad liberal arts education.

Managerial Economics and Organizational Sciences does not currently offer an academic program at the graduate level.
