The Master of Science in Applied Economics (MSAE) degree at Marquette University is for individuals seeking careers as economic, market or financial analysts in industry, government, or the financial sector. 


The Applied Economics program at Marquette University provides students the solid grounding in economic theory and the working knowledge of advanced quantitative methods needed to succeed as business economists, market or financial analysts, economic researchers, government staff economists, or economic consultants. 

Learning outcomes

In contrast to traditional, purely academic master's degree programs in economics, Marquette's MSAE program concentrates on developing and applying practical skills which can be used to solve real problems confronting business and government. 

The curriculum is designed to produce practitioners who can design, develop and interpret economic models. As a result, courses emphasize the application of economic theory and the use of quantitative techniques rather than the derivation of their theoretical underpinnings. Communication skills also are stressed through frequent written and oral presentations of results from applied projects.


Award-winning faculty - Our tenured faculty and instructors provide the perfect balance of real-world industry experience and top-notch scholarly research.

Powerful alumni network - Marquette's business alumni make up a global network that offers students a vast resource - one that exists long after you earn your diploma.
