Students applying to enter the master’s programs should have or be expecting a bachelor’s degree from a recognized institution. Applicants are normally expected to have passed some advanced undergraduate courses in economics that include intermediate macroeconomics and microeconomic analysis, courses in statistics, calculus, and linear algebra. However, people with no background in economics can apply provided they have taken and passed intermediate level courses in statistics and calculus.
