SDMAC 2023 Military Economic Impact Report

The 2023 Military Economic Impact Report (MEIR) has been released. The report not only sheds light on the significant contributions of our armed forces to the economy but also explores the emerging trends shaping the future of military economics in the San Diego region. SDMAC would like to thank our Title Sponsor: Bank Of America as well as UC San Diego Rady School of Management for their hard work on this report. Without you, this would not be possible.
