The Economic Science Laboratory is paving the way for the future of economics.
With a focus on experimental research, the ESL explores cutting-edge research questions on complex economic concepts—then finds ways to apply those findings not just in economics, but in many other areas of business, including accounting, management and marketing.
The ESL is committed to supporting the cutting-edge research of our members. Explore our policies and procedures, state-of-the-art facilities, funding opportunities and help and support resources.

The University of Arizona has a long and distinguished tradition of experimental economics. The Economics Science Laboratory has helped continue that tradition—gathering data that has served as the basis for hundreds of publications—since its opening in 1985.
The ESL is home to cutting-edge experimental research in social science—all thanks to our talented director (Eller Professor of Economics Charles Noussair), staff, faculty associates, graduate students and research associates.
