Division of Strategy and Business Economics
UBC's Strategy & Business Economics Division specializes in entrepreneurship, industrial organization, international business, urban land economics, and public policy. The Division was established in July 1999 through a merger of the Policy Analysis Division and the Urban Land Economics Division.
In support of its research activities, the Division conducts a very active workshop series and publishes working papers. Research in the Division relies strongly on formal analytical methods related to economics, including game theory, information theory, cost-benefit analysis, econometrics, and simulation.
Affiliated with our Division are the W. Maurice Young Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research Centre, the Phelps Centre for the Study of Government and Business, and the Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate. The Division also hosts the annual UBC Summer Conference on Industrial Organization.
