BU's Economics program is cited by the Journal of Economic Perspectives as one of the top 10 economics departments in North America. It offers the chance to learn from distinguished faculty and interact with a vibrant international student body. Graduates of the MBA+MA in Economics joint degree program go on to a variety of careers including investment banking, management, strategy, consulting, quantitative analysis, Third World development, environmental policy, and public sector work.
Following acceptance into the joint program, candidates normally register for two semesters in Questrom, followed by three semesters cross-registered in both GRS and Questrom. Students must successfully complete a minimum of 40 full-time credits (32 part-time) at Questrom and 24 credits in the Department of Economics; the other 16 credits may be taken at Questrom, the Department of Economics, or, with prior approval, elsewhere in the University.
Obtaining the two degrees separately would normally require six semesters in residence, but through careful course selection and elimination of overlapping courses, full-time students may earn this value joint degree in only five, or two and a half years.
