    An Active Faculty Both In and Out of the Classroom

    The MQE is offered by the Yeshiva University Department of Economics. The department comprises only research-active faculty who works on various issues spanning macro and micro economics, at both the theoretical and empirical levels. Our faculty publishes work in prestigious international scientific journals, such as American Economic Review, Econometrica, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Economic Theory and Journal of Mathematical Economics, participates in study groups or co-organizes conferences sponsored by the NBER, the Cowles Foundation and other institutions of international renown.

    Why "Quantitative" Economics?

    Economics taught at this MSc is 'quantitative' for the following reasons: 1) it is model-based, rigorous; 2) it leads to quantitative analyses via simulation, computation, and estimation of models; 3) it emphasizes a broader scope than many 'applied economics' programs; it is not focused on institutional, geographic or historical details, but on understanding the mechanisms behind economic and social institutions.
