Our Academic Program

The department offers a Master of Science in Applied Economics. This program is designed to accommodate students with varied backgrounds and needs, and offers sufficient flexibility to meet the career objectives of students with various interests. The program prepares students for careers in business, finance, industry, and government services, and also provides training for students who intend to pursue the study of economics at the Ph.D. level. Together, the program can accommodate students with undergraduate backgrounds in fields ranging from mathematics and engineering, economics and business, political science, public administration and liberal arts.
