The private, public, and nonprofit sectors demand economists and analysts who are equipped with a strong foundation in quantitative economics — and the ability to apply that knowledge to the challenges changing economies face. We provide students with the rigorous training that’s essential to financial and economic analysis.
Our program trains students in the heart of the west coast's financial capital so that they can become leaders and analysts in investment, wealth management, banking, corporate financial management, international finance and economics, and a host of other industries. Some graduates pursue PhD programs in economics.

Graduate students may spend a summer at a university abroad and earn six credits (as electives) toward their degree at USF. Overseas study requires approval by the graduate adviser and coordinator of the area of concentration. Students might also pursue an internship, which would substitute for an elective course upon approval by the graduate adviser.

Concentration options provide a framework by which graduate students may organize their program to achieve individual goals.
Students collaborate with a Graduate Adviser to design a plan of study. Some students use this option to prepare for PhD studies; others prepare for careers as economists in government or the private sector. Opportunities exist for directed research, a master's thesis, study/research abroad, and internships.
Students have the opportunity to study domestic and international financial markets, as well as the principles of financial decision-making in the banking, investment management, and corporate financial management professions. Students may also enroll in MBA courses and will complete a research project in the field of financial economics.
Students take courses in International trade and International finance, and select three electives from such courses as Economic Development, Development Microeconomics, Development Macroeconomics, Natural Resource Economics and Development Policy, and International Political Economy. Students also complete a research project in international economics.
We offer a limited number of merit-based scholarships to incoming students on a competitive basis. There is no separate application for these one-time scholarships, which are limited in number, vary in amount, and cover only part of tuition costs. If a scholarship is awarded, it will be indicated in the admission letter sent by the Economics program. All students admitted to the Economics graduate program are considered for these scholarships during the admission decision process.

The MA program in Economics began in 1972, predating the creation of the Graduate School Newark by 3 full years. As such, it is one of the oldest and most successful graduate programs at Rutgers-Newark.
The program accepts both full-time and part-time graduate students. Well-qualified full-time students may be able to complete the degree requirements within three semesters. Most part-time students should expect to take two or three years. We strongly suggest that part-time students take no more than two classes per semester. All matriculated students must complete their degree within four years of entering the program. Some graduate courses in economics are also open to non-matriculated students. But please note that non-matriculated students will not be allowed to take graduate classes unless they have taken undergraduate Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Statistics and Calculus.
All entering students are required to have undergraduate classes in micro and macro theory, one semester of statistics, and at least one semester of calculus. Intermediate Micro Theory Calc II and Econometrics are strongly recommended.
The MA Degree in Economics requires the successful completion of 10 three-credit courses, for a total of 30 graduate credits. Starting Fall 2014, all students must complete six core courses with an average grade of B or better:
The remaining 12 credits may be earned in any other graduate courses in economics or, with the consent of the graduate program director, in related disciplines (such as statistics and mathematics, public administration, global affairs, urban systems and business).
Graduate students at The New School for Social Research ask the kind of questions that challenge the status quo across the social sciences and humanities.
Guided by rigorous scholarship and a desire to apply academic discourse and discovery to current social problems, they critically examine interdisciplinary fields to become a force of new knowledge and ideas in the world.
All graduate programs at The New School for Social research can be completed full-time or part-time on our New York City campus. Competitive merit-based scholarships are available in all departments -- in recent years, 85% of master’s students have received merit scholarships at The New School for Social Research.
Change begins with a question. What will you ask?
The New School for Social Research was founded in 1919 as a home for progressive thinkers, and housed the University in Exile in 1933, providing an academic haven for scholars persecuted in Nazi Europe. The school became the foundation for a comprehensive university – The New School – and continues the legacy of critical thought, civic engagement, and academic freedom today.
The Masters of Science degree program in Business Analytics (MS-BA) is designed to meet the rising national and international demand of businesses for professionals who can collect, analyze, and interpret the avalanche of data created in the context of economic activity.
