The Basic Economic Development Course (BEDC) provides an introduction to the concepts and practices of a broad economic development program. Through classroom instruction, peer learning, and case studies, the New York BEDC offers an immersive and comprehensive educational experience in economic development fundamentals.

This year’s BEDC will be conducted over three and a half days instead of four, and will begin June 21th at 1:00pm.

Four basic themes taught at the BEDC include:

  1. Concepts of economic development;
  2. Trends in economic development;
  3. Development location factors; and
  4. Practical techniques and best practices of successful development.

The faculty of the New York BEDC is comprised of seasoned practitioners and consultants who are recognized for their experience and expertise across the economic development practice. While the content of BEDC presentations place a focus on fundamentals, the course also highlights leading national and international trends and best practices in economic development.
