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.
