The Darla Moore School of Business’ Master of Arts in Economics program combines a solid foundation in economics with an emphasis on applying that knowledge to real-world situations. While the program prepares students for careers as professional economists in government and business, some graduates use the degree as a springboard toward further education in law or a doctoral degree in business or economics.

The program is compact—three semesters in length for most students—but powerful, with course offerings in such areas as business economics, quantitative economics, money and banking, economic theory, growth and development, international economics, and industrial organization and public policy.
