Program Overview

The Master of Arts in Economics (MA-ECO) builds upon and enhances the knowledge and skills gained in an undergraduate economics program, particularly in economic analysis, macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics and calculus. 

The program provides two options for graduates: a thesis and a non-thesis track, unlike the Master of Science in Economics (MS-ECO), where the thesis is an integral part of the curriculum. 

The MAECO program allows students the opportunity to specialize in a specific area of economics.


Why You Should Take a Master's Degree in Economics?

The Master of Arts in Economics is useful for those who want to pursue a career in teaching and/or researching economics. The program is also a good foundation in preparation for the PhD Economics programs. Graduates can also be employed in the government, banks and financial institutions, businesses and corporations, and multinational and multilateral agencies.
