Discover the Why: Theory + Analytics = Real-World Applications
The Master of Arts in Economics combines a solid foundation in economics with an emphasis
on practical applications. You’ll develop real-world economic and financial experience,
covering a vast array of industry-related topics such as sales and revenue forecasting,
marketplace trend analysis, econometric modeling and more — all of which are some
of the most sought-after skills in business and government today.
Why Choose MAEcon?
You’ll select from one of three tracks: economics, financial economics or thesis. Each track includes a common core of macroeconomics,

business, government or the finance sector or go on to earn a Ph.D.
You’ll learn from world-renowned faculty who are not only thought leaders in their
fields but have relevant industry experience in banking and finance as well as state,
national and international economics. What’s more, you’ll be paired with a faculty
advisor who will help you select classes and guide you through the program.

skillset and see a significant salary increase upon graduation. Non-thesis track students
