The Master of Economics Planning &Policy is a program designed to train students in applied economic analysis with a strong policy orientation. Although some graduates do pursue PhD studies in economics, policy analysis, or related areas, the primary purpose of the program is to prepare students for employment as economic analysts in a variety of public and private-sector organizations. The program is distinguished from traditional public policy programs, which often lack rigorous economic analysis in the policy context. It is distinguished from traditional MA in Economics programs, which commonly provide more abstract technical training, with only limited opportunities to apply this training to “real world” policy problems. The program aims to provide students with graduate-level technical training that has direct policy relevance.
To achieve this, the program offers specially designed courses in microeconomic and macroeconomic theory that emphasize the use of economic theory in the analysis of public policy.
This course is particularly relevant if you wish to work as a professional economist in the private or public sector.
An economics MSc provides a logical and rigorous perspective on human behavior which is valued by a wide-range of employers around the world, in banking, business, consulting, government and academia.
