The MA program in economics is designed to train students in the quantitative and applied economic skills that will best enhance their future employment opportunities in the private and public sectors, or their pursuit of PhD studies in economics or related fields.
Our MA program emphasizes extensive training in mathematical and quantitative analysis, including the provision of substantial exposure to applied econometrics, working with large and diverse data sets, and a wide range of statistical software. The program gives students the applied skills that employers demand, provides those pursuing advanced degrees an edge in gaining admission to top-flight PhD programs-and enhances the likelihood of the student’s ultimate success.
