Master of Arts in Economics New York University




Course info


A master’s degree in economics is an increasingly essential tool in a global economy. The M.A. program in economics at New York University is one of the most rigorous in the country. It will give you a solid background in advanced economics and enable you to upgrade your skills in applied economic analysis and public policy. It can also serve as an excellent preparatory degree for those students wishing to go on to a Ph.D. program elsewhere in the U.S. Some of our MA Economic graduates have gone on to pursue a PhD at the following universities: University of Chicago, University of Minnesota, UCLA, University of Oxford, Ohio State, Georgetown and NYU.

Job Opportunities:

Candidates who hold a master’s degree in economics have much better employment prospects than those of bachelor’s degree holders, and they also obtain a higher median base salary than candidates with bachelor’s degrees (from Occupational Outlook Handbook, Bureau of Labor Statistics). Opportunities for economists range from positions in the business world in banking, insurance, investment and communications firms to those in academic settings, government agencies, trade associations and consulting organizations. Our students are employed at such companies and organizations as: American Express, Credit Suisse, Goldman/Sachs/& Co., Smart Money Magazine, Time Magazine, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Bloomberg Communications, AIG Insurance Company, Moody’s , The IMF, Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Royal Bank of Canada.
