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.

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.
