Graduate Training in Economics and Data Analytics for a Smart, Green World

The Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applicants to their 10-month professional Master's program in Resource and Energy Demand Analysis (REDA). The world economy is experiencing a boom in energy and resource conservation programs, and strategies that use next-generation smart technologies to reduce energy demand are a major part of this. REDA is designed to train analytically-capable professionals for careers in this industry. The program includes:

  • 3-course series in statistics and econometrics focused on resource and energy demand analysis
  • Courses in environmental economics, resource economics, and energy economics
  • Methods course focusing on benefit-cost analysis, sample design, and survey design
  • Seminar course drawing on Madison's extensive community of energy professionals
  • Capstone practicum featuring real-world analysis scenarios that provide training on the range of responsibilities required of resource and energy analysts.

Graduates will find employment with consulting firms, utilities, regulatory and government agencies, and private firms engaged in the development of resource and energy conservation programs. For more information, visit the program web site at http://reda.aae.wisc.edu/ or contact Bethany Glinsmann (bglinsmann@wisc.edu).


World Economics Association

The World Economics Association (WEA) has been in existence since 16 May 2011. The WEA is established to increase the relevance, breadth and depth of economics, and to free the economics profession from the dominance of any one country or bloc of countries. Its key features are:

  • worldwide membership and governance,
  • inclusiveness with respect to diverse theoretical perspectives and related disciplines, and
  • the study of the world’s diverse economies.

The World Economics Association will publish three quarterly online journals (with print copies available for a fee) and hold online conferences. Subscriptions to the journals and participation in the conferences are free to members. Membership in the WEA is also free. To join takes only one minute. You can join now by going to http://worldeconomicsassociation.org/index.php and entering name, country and email address.
