Graduate Program


The School of Ecomonics offers two graduate level degree programs:

  • M.S. in Economics

    The three-semester Professional Master of Science in Economics is grounded in applied economy theory and econometrics, preparing students for a career in both the private and public sectors or for a Ph.D. in Economics.  Consistent with Georgia Institute of Technology's technological emphasis, the M.S. in Economics focuses upon technology, regulation, market structures, and international economics.

  • Ph.D. in Economics

    The Ph.D. in Economics is unique in its focus on the common globalization and innovation issues that interconnect development economics, environmental economics, and international economics. The program emphasizes the economic forces that generate the impetus for individuals to compete globally and analyzes the interrelated effects that these forces have on the environment, international trade, and development in a variety of industrial sectors.
