The MA in Economics is a terminal master’s program that equips its graduates with the advanced knowledge and skills required for an economic analyst in the business world, the consulting industry, or a central bank. The training includes the thorough understanding of fundamental economic principles, application of mathematical methods and modeling, and the use of computer software for large-scale data analysis. It is accomplished through the economics core (four courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, statistics, and econometrics) and four elective courses. These courses are designed exclusively for master’s students, distinct from our PhD and undergraduate offerings. The elective courses cover nearly all major areas of economics and are taught largely by our own research faculty. Applicants to this program should have, or be expecting, a bachelor’s degree in economics, economics and mathematics, or a closely related discipline (from an institution recognized by the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences).
