Welcome to the Minnesota Council

Founded in 1961, the Minnesota Council equips Minnesotans with the economic and personal finance understanding needed to succeed in today's complex economy. The MN Council is hosted by the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota.

MCEE recognizes that a strong economic understanding empowers learners to build their human capital and pursue opportunities to gain self-fulfillment. This knowledge enables individuals to think critically about the world around them, act as informed citizens and smart consumers, accomplish career goals, and improve the communities they live in.

To serve the entire state, MCEE works with a Minnesota-wide network of PhD faculty at university-based centers for economic education based in the Twin Cities, Mankato, St. Cloud, Moorhead, and uses K-12 Master Teachers. MCEE is an affiliate of the national Council for Economic Education (CEE). As a leading state council with over fifty years of service to Minnesota, MCEE is well placed through collaborative partnerships with public and private entities to fulfill our stated mission.
