MA in Economics

The private, public and nonprofit sectors demand economists and analysts who are equipped with a strong foundation in quantitative economics – and the ability to apply that knowledge to the challenges faced by changing economies. We provide students with rigorous training in the analytical knowledge and abilities essential to financial and economic analysis.

Our program trains students in quantitative economics in the heart of the West Coast's financial capital, so that its students can become leaders and analysts in investment and wealth management, as well as in banking, corporate financial management, international finance and economics, and a host of other industries. Some graduates also pursue further studies in PhD programs in economics.

The expertise of the faculty in realms of international development, such as microfinance, have opened up entirely new areas of economic development to me. These topics are now foundations of my research interests and my career.
