Economic Studies

A Master of Science, or a Master’s degree in Science is an academic degree delivered by Universities in many countries. A Master of Science is a popular choice after completing a Bachelor’s degree.

Economics and administration is a discipline that focuses on both macro and micro economics. Experts are trained to understand both how individual actions and mass trends affect the economy. Many specialize in particular subject areas such as public policy, business economics and consumer behavior.

 

A few universities in the United States have extension programs in various parts of Jamaica. Most of the students who enroll in these part-time programs are working professionals who want to continue their education without having to relocate closer to the nation's Universities. Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean.
