What is an MA in Economic Policy? Depending upon the specific focus chosen by the student, the study of economic policy could involve courses in applied policy, the development of economic policies, integral economic development or macroeconomics. Students will look at the interplay between organizations or societies as they are affected by politics and changes in economies. The program covers subjects that prepare students to analyze and affect policies, often with a global impact.

Students develop technical skills to produce results based on clear information and an accurate understanding of macro- and microeconomic environments. Students of the program also develop the skills they need to design and nurture their own economic programs, with the ability to evaluate the efficacy of those programs. Throughout the program, students earn valuable perspectives important to ethical initiatives and institutions. 

The cost of attendance in these programs can vary a great deal and be affected by the cost of living surrounding the school. This is particularly true as schools are situated in a number of countries. For accurate information about tuition and other costs, prospective students should contact schools individually.
