Masters Degree in Economic Studies in Asia

Economic Studies

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

Aside from the distinguishing between microeconomics and macroeconomics, students who are studying economics must also learn the difference between positive economics and normative economics. The former deals with that which is, while the later deals with that which ought to be. Other distinguishing characteristics include economic theory and applied economics.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

The MEP is based on academic science and aimed to research perspective. The main tendency of scientific knowledge in XX-XXI centuries is the drift to complex systems and stochastic processes research. It affected research methods, results, and understanding of science destination per se. Economics as a social science reflects this tendency to the full extend. As a famous economist W. Baumol said, the most impressing results since early 1900th were achieved rather in empirical and applied researches than in theoretical novelty. However general scientific trends take specific dimensions for economic science in accordance to its subject and methods. Another famous economist – A. Marshall – has defined economics as dealing with ordinary operation of human society; it‘s studying individual and collective actions about making and using material basis of wealth. It means study of wealth from the one hand and study of a human – from the other. Nowadays the economists got into social phenomena deep enough to investigate such a complicated effects Marshall could not imagine.
