Learn More and ApplyEconomics (BA) + Economics and Quantitative Analysis (MS)


Business program

The MS in Economics and Quantitative Analysis (MS-EPA) gives students a distinguished and marketable set of skills in economic theory as it applies to business and economic policy analysis. Students learn how to conduct statistical and econometric research grounded in sound economic models using data from multiple sources on different issues. In addition, students will be able to explain their results and policy recommendations not only to economists, but also to politicians, and the general public.

Course Title Quarter Hours
Graduate Economics elective (subject to prerequisites)4

Students who begin the program in winter or spring quarters will select graduate courses in consultation with the Director of the MS in Economics and Quantitative Analysis Program.

These three courses will count towards completion of the BA with a major in Economics and will also count towards completion of the MS-EPA (students are encouraged to check with the department if they are not also economics majors). The undergraduate degree will be awarded at the completion of all undergraduate work while the MS-EPA will be awarded upon completion of the remaining graduate level work.
