The Ronald and Maxine Linde Institute of Economic and Management Sciences is Caltech's hub for interdisciplinary research and education in the social sciences, with concentrations in economics, finance, and entrepreneurship. Linde Institute researchers strive to gain deeper insight into the mathematical, social, psychological, and even neurobiological principles behind business and economic interactions and behaviors. In their classroom and research interactions with Linde Institute faculty, students learn the analytical and conceptual tools needed for careers in economics and business as managers and entrepreneurs.

Established in 2011 thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Caltech benefactors Ronald Linde (MS '62, PhD '64) and his wife, Maxine Linde, The Linde Institute has since grown in scope to include the Center for Social Information Sciences (CSIS) and, as of 2018, the Center for Theoretical and Experimental Social Sciences (CTESS).
