The MA in Applied Economics program at UNCG remains one of the best investments a student can make. It is a professional degree, designed to jump-start your career as a professional economist. The integrated curriculum blends applied micreconomic theory with training in policy analysis and data analytics to prepare students to solve real-world problems for the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the Bank of America, RTI International, United Guaranty, the US Environmental Protection Agency, Fidelity Investments, and dozens of other employers who rely on data-based decision making.
This is the best economics graduate program for students who want to begin or continue their studies of economic theory and economic problems without limiting their careers to academia.
