The MA in Applied Economics program offers a prime location in the nation’s capital, unique research and internship opportunities and a rigorous curriculum with dedicated faculty mentors.
Our students, however, are our greatest asset. A new class of 30–40 students joins us each fall, and about 15 each spring. Some are recent college graduates, and others have years of work experience. About half are from countries outside the United States. Representing diverse backgrounds and disciplines, they form a close-knit community within the department.
All newly admitted students are invited to an orientation session in the first few weeks of the program, where they can discuss the program and bond with fellow classmates. Students are also encouraged to join faculty and alumni at department events throughout the year, including happy hours, guest speakers and more.
