Interestingly, managerial economics is a fairly common choice coming in at the 76th most popular area of study. Last academic year alone, there were 5,948 managerial economics degrees conferred. In-state tuition for managerial economics at private colleges is, on average, 4.1 times more expensive than their public equivalents.
