What our Students Say
I wanted to enter into a program that focuses on applying my knowledge in real world settings. While researching master’s programs, I found that a regular master’s was often seen to be the consolation prize for a doctorate in economics. However an applied degree takes the skills that I learn and allows me to see how they would be used in the real world.
