Economics

This program focuses on applied economic theory. We offer a one-year, course-work master’s degree program as well as a PhD program.

Resources for graduate students are excellent, from libraries that subscribe to all of the major economic journals to computer labs available to students 24 hours a day.

You’ll have access to three powerful Unix-based servers that run advanced computing applications such as Gauss, S-plus, Garch, Wavelette, SAS, Stata, IMSL and Unix versions of Maple and TSP.
