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.
The 33rd Summer Conference on Industrial Organization is scheduled to be held at the UBC Vancouver Campus, July 12-13, 2019.
The Phelps Centre for the Study of Government and Business hosts this annual summer conference, held at UBC since 1993 (and before that at Carleton University from 1987). Each year the conference brings six or seven outstanding scholars to UBC to discuss their current research in a workshop environment.
