About

The Master of Science in Commerce and Economic Development from Northeastern University, a STEM-designated program, integrates economics, leadership, technology, and public policy to prepare students for a career in the private or public sector.

Overview

Globalization has created a borderless economy with a host of new opportunities and challenges for those engaged in commerce and economic development. While global markets offer exciting growth prospects, navigating the world stage requires in-depth knowledge of the financial, regulatory, and economic environments and institutions that affect the global economy and international trade. 

To meet the need for both insight and skills development, Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies—in collaboration with Northeastern University’s College of Social Sciences and Humanities—offers the Commerce and Economic Development program from Northeastern University, which integrates an applied economics study of information, institutions, and innovation designed to develop and hone analytical skills to support private and public decision-making.

Career Outlook

Several major trends—policy convergence, e-commerce expansion, and continued international development—are driving the job growth in the fields of international trade and economic development, and career prospects are expected to remain strong. Jobs in economic analysis and international trade are typically well-paying, with individuals holding advanced degrees expected to enjoy the best opportunities.
