DESCRIPTION: The Master of Arts in Economics and Financial Economics provides excellent preparation for a career as an analyst in government or the private sector, and for doctoral study. One distinct advantage of the M.A.E. is its focus on the development of strong analytical and quantitative skills. Students are well-trained in the application of economic theory and methods of statistical analysis.

The Economic Analysis and Financial Economics concentrations are primarily designed for students who wish to pursue careers in the financial services industry, including commercial banking, investment banking, insurance, real estate and financial advising.

ADMISSION
REQUIREMENTS:
Official transcript(s), GMAT or GRE, goal statement, three letters of recommendation, resume and TOEFL, IELTS, MELAB or PTE, if applicable.
GRADUATION
REQUIREMENTS:
Minimum of 30 semester hours of coursework, or a minimum of 24 hours of coursework and a thesis.

Students entering the program will be expected to have completed undergraduate courses in intermediate microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, differential calculus and statistics. Any deficiencies must be made up before the start of the program. These background courses do not count toward the 30 hours required for the degree.

Both the Financial Economics and Economic Analysis tracks  are built upon a set of core courses in economic theory and econometrics. The student then takes elective courses in areas such as international economics, economic development, monetary economics, labor economics, public sector economics or several courses in the Department of Finance, depending on the track chosen.

PROGRAM FEE: None
