The Department has two streams in the graduate program: Economics and Econometrics (E&E), which places greater emphasis on theory (micro and macro), mathematics and statistical methods, and Economics and Society (E&S), which places greater emphasis on how the distribution of wealth and power affects the socioeconomic and physical environment.
At the University of Manitoba, the graduate program in the Economics stream requires students to take more core courses in theory, mathematics and statistics, while the E&S stream is more individually tailored to the student’s research. Applicants to the graduate program in Economics apply to one stream, and are not considered for admission to the other stream. Therefore, applicants are advised to carefully check admission and program requirements to decide which stream provides the best fit.
