Join a welcoming and collaborative campus community and learn from internationally-recognized researchers in the Master of Arts (MA) in Economics program at the Lang School of Business and Economics. This advanced program will extend your economics and finance knowledge and prepare you for a variety of roles within the public and private sectors, as well as further education at the PhD level. The program offers a finance specialization for students who wish to focus their studies towards finance-based economics.

Master’s students can choose a coursebased degree (8 months) or course work plus Major Research Project (MRP) degree (12 months). The MRP is completed in the third semester, supervised by a faculty member. Both specializations (Economic and Finance) will need to take a non-credit preliminary mathematics course as well as the Economic core of advanced microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. Students interested in the finance specialization will need to take additional courses in theoretical and empirical finance.
