The department of Economics is committed to providing students a strong grounding in business economics, where students will learn about accounting, finance and management while also discovering how to forecast general economic conditions, estimate trends, analyze data, and use economic theory to help their organization operate more efficiently.
The MS in Economics is designed to introduce students to graduate-level study in economics. The MS in Economics provides a strong foundation in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics, in addition to allowing students to pursue some electives in their fields of interest. The degree is often earned en passant to a Ph.D. in Economics or a related field; we do not typically admit students seeking a terminal master’s degree, although there may be exceptions (part-time students, international exchange students, or other special cases). If your ultimate goal is a Ph.D., you should apply directly to the Ph.D. program regardless of whether you already have a master’s degree.
