• MS in Quantitative Economics

  • About

    Started in the academic year 2012–2013, the Master of Science in Quantitative Economics (MQE) at Yeshiva University is open to graduates in economics and related fields, or mathematics and related fields (four-year bachelor's degree or equivalent). The MQE is offered by the Department of Economics at Yeshiva University and is part of the new Graduate Programs in Arts and Sciences at YU. The department has been undergoing a transformation that stresses the importance of research both in its own right and as complementary to high-quality teaching. As we built our strength as a research group, we also opened the MQE to train students for analytical or research-based careers in economics and finance.

    Attention: application deadlines for the 2015–2016 academic year are February 1 (early admission) and April 26, 2015.

    A Comprehensive, Flexible Program

    The MQE is a pre-experience, 12-month long program that covers subjects and topics fundamental to students who want a career as junior economists in the private or public sector. The Manhattan location allows proximity to a variety of businesses and government organizations where economics is a useful trade tool for a variety of jobs. The MQE is also a valuable degree to continue studies onto a PhD program.

    Yeshiva University offers high-quality courses to small sets of students, which allow better interaction with faculty. Students in the MQE will receive rigorous training in micro and macro economics. Students will also get training in statistical and computational aspects of economics, with applications to fields such as macro-labor economics, public finance, monetary policy, financial economics and market design. Courses refer to textbooks or lecture notes, describing the content of the lectures and specifically designed for the course. Classes may be supplemented with material available online.
