The MA in economics program provides highly demanded skills in economic analysis and policy for students seeking jobs in the public or private sector. The program also prepares the academically oriented student to excel in PhD studies. The first year program consists of a total of 24 credit hours in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. The second year presents two options: a Master Thesis plus 9 credit hours or a Term Project plus 12 credit hours from advanced elective courses.
Unique in Turkey in its depth and scope, the MA program prepares the academically oriented student for PhD studies and, on the other hand, in conjunction with the Public Policy MA program, provides the students who seek jobs in the public or private sector with the highly demanded skills in economic policy and analysis.
The PhD program offered its first degree in 2010. With a quality curriculum and first-class faculty, it aims at producing top-level academicians.
