The Association of Private Enterprise Education (APEE) is an association of teachers and scholars from colleges and universities, public policy institutes, and industry with a common interest in studying and supporting the system of private enterprise. APEE hosts an annual conference for members to share their scholarly findings and offers a number of awards to recognize individuals who have contributed to the cause of private enterprise. Support for young scholars is often available to attend the annual conference. The association sponsors the Journal of Private Enterprise so scholars may share their research with the wider academic community.

APEE's Mission: Revealing the Invisible Hand Through Education

The mission of The Association of Private Enterprise Education is to put into action accurate and objective understandings of private enterprise.

Our members seek and employ creative ways of illustrating the value and importance of the invisible hand through their writings and teachings. We are putting private enterprise understanding into action.
