Key facts about the Applied Economics programme at the University of Neuchâtel:

Economists are social scientists equipped with a specific set of tools, which include:
  • Models (or abstract simplifications) capturing salient aspects of social interactions in a given context, and
  • Empirical methods employed to quantify the relevance of causal mechanisms with real-world data.
Applying these tools, applied economists shed light on a wide range of social issues, and can inform decisions within the firm or the family and the design of public policy interventions.
