The purpose of IIE is to analyze, interpret and spread data and information on the Bolivian economy. Another important goal of IIE is to provide our undergraduates with relevant experience with applied economic research and data.
Established in 1994, IIE is an independent unit of the Universidad Mayor de San Andrés, with close ties to the Department of Economics. IIE research associates frequently work collaboratively with faculty members and undergraduate students from the University of San Andrés, and other economists from the rest of the country.
The IIE’s specific objectives are:
- Focusing efforts in teaching, research and social interaction to solve problems of scientific and technological dependence.
- To promote research activities in the university community, in order to generate scientific knowledge about Bolivian economy and its problems.
- Select priority research topics to be incorporated into the curriculum of the Department of Economics and related fields.
- Publish text books elaborated by the faculty members of the Department of Economics.
