MS/M.Phil. Economics

MS/M.Phil. Economics leading to Phd. is designed as an intensive and rigorous degree program that intends to investigate and discover solutions to national and international economic issues. Two factors contribute to the high quality of research and training of our students: one is a strong foundation in basic topics of economics; the other is to create a research-led environment where students work alongside with leading researchers to develop the skills required to become professional economists, researchers and analysts. MS/M.Phil. Students are required to complete 36 credit hours. During the first two semesters, MS/M. Phil. students are expected to complete 24 credit hours (12+12) of course work. In the third semester, MPhil students choose two elective courses (6 credit hours) along with a thesis of 6 credit hours, while MS students opt four elective courses of 3 credit hours.
