New 10-month Master's Planned for Fall 2015

A new, accelerated Master's option will train students to enter the fast-growing job market for specialists who can evaluate energy efficiency and other conservation initiatives. AAE plans a professional Master's in Resource and Energy Demand Analysis (REDA) for Fall 2015. We invite applications from students who want to work to promote environmental sustainability, who enjoy quantitative work, and who aim for good starting salaries.

Calculating Risk as Milk Prices Sink and Soar

At 4:30 p.m. on the last business Friday of each month, dairy farmers across the country have 27 hours to decide whether to insure their milk income in a volatile market. "Milk prices can double or fall by half in any given year," says Brian Gould. He points to the 1995 change in the way milk is priced as the culprit that has forced dairy producers to become experts in risk management just to stay solvent. Gould's unique, award-winning website gives them a powerful decision-making tool.
