MS in International and Development Economics

Nosso Programa

We combine training in economics and econometrics with practical experience through the International Fieldwork research or internship.

The rapid pace of globalization has increased the demand for professionals with training in international economics and economic development. Our one-of-a-kind Master of Science in International and Development Economics (IDEC) provides students with the knowledge and skills to understand how market forces can be harnessed to empower developing countries to break from cycles of poverty.

Built-In International Fieldwork

During the summer, you’ll form a small group with fellow students to collect primary data and access secondary data as part of an internship or partnership with an international institution. Your research will be the basis for your master’s thesis, which you’ll develop under your adviser’s supervision.

Summer Bridge Program

The Summer Bridge program is uniquely offered to non-economics and non-math students.

STEM Program

We are designated as a STEM program (science, technology, engineering, and math). Eligible international students may apply to work in the United States for up to three years after graduation via the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program and STEM extension.
