Agricultural and Applied Economics

We are researchers producing findings with global impact, instructors developing students for life-long careers, and experts providing invaluable insights across diverse economic sectors.

Inspired by the land-grant mission to teach, conduct research, and share findings, the Virginia Tech Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics exemplifies the University's motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). Actively pursuing these tenants, faculty and students serve each other, Virginia industry and government, as well as the global community. We invite you to join AAEC as we solve today's economic problems and champion tomorrow's leaders.
