M.A. in Applied Economics
The rapid growth of the Israeli economy and its increased integration into global markets creates a great demand for senior experts of finance and economy who are proficient in advanced information systems, skilled at implementing economic theory and quantitative models and are capable of expressing and communicating their conclusions and recommendations in a clear, concise and convincing manner.
The School of Economics master’s degree program offers a robust, up-to-date theoretical background integrated with practical tools for the next generation of professionals in senior positions in economic consulting firms, economic departments of large companies, investment firms and more.
The M.A. in Applied Economics thus offers a hands-on program, which provides economists with the “tool box” required for economic analysis via practical work on real-world economic issues. The students are taught by experienced mentors from both academia and industry. Graduates enter the job market as financial consultants or as senior economists.
