About Us

The L. William Seidman Research Institute serves as a link between local, national, and international business communities and the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.

Established in 1985 to serve as a center for applied business research alongside a consultancy resource for the Arizona business community, we collect, analyze and disseminate information about local economies, benchmark industry practices, and identify emerging business research issues that affect productivity and competitiveness.
