Master of Science in Applied Economics

Faculty

Our courses are taught by PhD economists affiliated with the University of Maryland. Our instructors work at the same kinds of government agencies, private firms and NGOs that recruit and hire our graduates.

Economics PhD candidates from the University of Maryland work as teaching assistants and graders. Faculty from the main campus in College Park give occasional guest lectures.
