Description and Course Outlines



Program Requirements

Each student must complete the equivalent of 9 half-credit one-term courses. The equivalent of six half-credit courses are required, while three are electives. Students must complete the three core courses in Term One before proceeding to Term Two. At least one elective must be from the Department of Economics. Students may take at most three half-credit elective courses from graduate courses in the MBA program.

The required courses provide students with advanced knowledge in economic theory, applied economic analysis, quantitative methods, and empirical research and information sources. They are also designed to ensure that all students have a similar graduate experience, and achieve a comprehensive knowledge of their field, thus fulfilling the university's comprehensive requirement for MA candidates.

Note: Not all courses are offered every year. Contact the department before accepting an offer of admission to determine whether the courses you wish to complete will be offered during your period of residency.
