We Bring Economics to Life
The world is built on a foundation of economics and personal finance, but it's not always easy to understand. It's the difference between knowing something and living it.
We believe that the world is changed for the better when everyone has access to high-quality education in topics that make a difference in their life. For us, it starts with economics.
We help you connect the dots, understanding how economic and financial forces impact your daily life and how to navigate those forces for a more prosperous future.
At a Glance
Founded in June of 1961, the Minnesota Council on Economic Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to ensuring all Minnesotans are prepared and ready to participate in the global economy.
As an organization, we've been working to teach teachers, engage students, and reach communities across the state through comprehensive and relevant programs that speak to the problems facing every-day Minnesotans. These programs are delivered by our state-wide network of PhD faculty, expert K-12 educators, and dedicated staff at university-based centers for economic education in Duluth, Mankato, Moorhead, St. Cloud, and the Twin Cities.
The Minnesota Council on Economic Education is the state affiliate of the National Council for Economic Education.
Economic and financial literacy education has transformed the lives of Minnesotans, empowering them to find pathways to life and workplace success, and to provide for family and community stability.
We are incredibly proud of the work we accomplish each year. From launching new programs to providing updates to curriculum and training materials, we've been keeping busy serving all Minnesotans.
The program numbers below demonstrate our commitment to reaching communities across the state to ensure that everyone can access a high-quality education.
