Master of Arts in Economics and Master of Science in Finance (Dual)

Program Overview

Allows students to combine the quantitative skills of an economics degree with the practical applications of a business degree. Graduates become highly skilled research professionals with considerable econometric skill and familiarity with their chosen financial institutions.

For students wishing to combine the quantitative skills of an economics degree with the practical applications of a business degree, the Economics Department offers an M.A. Economics/M.S. Finance dual degree program. This 42 credit-hour program is offered jointly with the Graduate School of Business. The dual degree program is intended to create highly-skilled research professionals with considerable econometric skill as well as familiarity with their chosen financial institutions. Given the similarity in course work within the two programs there can be considerable time savings for the student.  Students without an accounting background need to take BUSN 6550 before the other courses in Business and Finance. This does not count toward the 14 courses for the degrees.
