How to Apply

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 changing economies face. We provide students with the rigorous training that’s essential to financial and economic analysis.

San Francisco Advantage

Our program trains students in the heart of the west coast's financial capital so that they can become leaders and analysts in investment, wealth management, banking, corporate financial management, international finance and economics, and a host of other industries. Some graduates pursue PhD programs in economics.

Overseas Study and Internships

Graduate students may spend a summer at a university abroad and earn six credits (as electives) toward their degree at USF. Overseas study requires approval by the graduate adviser and coordinator of the area of concentration. Students might also pursue an internship, which would substitute for an elective course upon approval by the graduate adviser.
