The program prepares you for a diverse set of careers in quantitative research, business analytics, and/or government policy.

A Growing Field

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for economists with a master’s degree is $162,870 in the New York area. There are also expected to be ample job opportunities in the future, with employment predicted to grow 6 percent annually from 2021 to 2031.

Learn From the Best

  • This is the only master’s program in the New York metropolitan region that combines both public economic policy and quantitative analysis in its curriculum.
  • The program is offered in a flexible online and hybrid learning format, either full-time (12 months) or part-time (24 months).
  • You will gain superior, advanced training in applied economics with a special emphasis on data analytics and economic policy analysis.

Combined Degree Track

The Combined Degree Track allows you to replace up to 12 undergraduate credits with graduate-level courses.
