Applied Economics

It provides students with a solid understanding of the fundamental tools of economic analysis that are employed to conduct rigorous study of economic issues and economic policies. The focus of the program is applied economics. This focus contrasts with that of alternative professional degrees, such as an MBA, which provide the relevant training for a career in business or management. The program’s focus on applied economics also is distinct from that of a masters degree in economics, which is frequently considered a stepping stone to a PhD in Economics and concentrates on contributions to academic research.
