Stephen E. Erfle began his career as a managerial economist during a 1994¡ª1995 sabbatical at Seagram Classics Wine Company (SCWC). During those fourteen months, he maintained offices at Sterling Vineyards and at Mumm Cuv¨¦e Napa, where, respectively, the finance and marketing departments of SCWC resided. Trained as a microeconomic theorist, he began to use his economist¡¯s toolkit to analyze concrete business questions, such as, Should Mumm raise the price of Brut Prestige a dollar a bottle? When does it make sense to have another tasting room associate on the floor in Sterling¡¯s tasting room?

On returning to Dickinson College, Dr. Erfle decided to refocus his teaching in a more applied direction. He helped found the International Business and Management department and major during the late 1990s. One of the core courses in that major is his course, Managerial Economics, which uses Excel as a teaching platform. This course is modeled after what he did during his SCWC sabbatical. In the past fifteen years, he has taught more than a thousand undergraduates how to build economic models in order to do comparative statics analysis and how to do regression modeling in Excel.
