About

The Master of Arts in Applied Economics offers two concentrations: general and mathematical methods. The general concentration emphasizes the training of students with backgrounds in economics and other arts and sciences for careers that require strong quantitative skills, technical tools, and communication abilities that can be applied to a broad range of subjects.
