About

The Economics MA program from Carleton University contains rigorous training in microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory and econometrics, as well as elective courses in a wide range of applied fields.

Overview

Students in the Economics MA program at Carleton University can also pursue a concentration in Financial Economics. Our Internship Placement Program gives students an opportunity to apply the analytical skills acquired during their studies in the public service, private sector or non-governmental organizations. 

Carleton also has an exchange agreement with the University of Ottawa, which permits our students to enroll in one of their courses (with permission) without paying extra fees.

Career Opportunities

Recent graduates of our programs have accepted positions at a number of different government agencies—including the Bank of Canada, the Canada Revenue Agency, Finance Canada, Industry Canada, Employment and Social Development Canada (formerly Human Resources and Skills Development Canada), Transport Canada, Statistics Canada, and the Competition Bureau—and at various private firms—including Nesbitt Burns, Infometrica, and Shopify. While master’s alumni may pursue a PhD, PhD alumni may end up working in academia.
