Our M.S. in Economics is applied in nature, emphasizing applied economic theory, economic modeling, economic analytics, and quantitative methods. The program provides rigorous training as well as options to specialize in various areas in Economics and other Schools and Colleges within Georgia Tech. Our faculty have a history of teaching and commitment to the program, and to the professional success of the M.S. students.
The M.S. program is designed for a wide range of students. These include:
- students who have already completed substantial coursework in economics who seek an additional economics education to prepare for work in consulting or industry
- students who have already completed substantial coursework in economics who wish to apply for advanced programs in Economics, Management, or Law
- students who have an engingeering or sciences background but would like to diversify their skill set and develop an expertise in applied economics
- professionals working in industry or consutling who wish to enhance their analytic and quantitative skills from the decision-making perspective provided by Economics
Consistent with the objectives of the entire Georgia Institute of Technology, the Master of Science in Economics takes a multidisciplinary, research-oriented, hands-on approach to education, where knowledge is not the end but rather the means through which problems are solved and opportunities are created.
Cohorts for the M.S. in Economics begin each fall. The application deadline for Fall 2016 is June 15, 2016.
