About

The program attracts students with focused career choices that require core competence in analytical skills and mathematical methods. It also prepares students with interests in pursuing a Ph.D. in economics with substantial quantitative skills, or a Ph.D. in Mathematics with economic applications. We believe that the analytical nature of the program will attract high quality undergraduates.

The MA Economics portion of the dual degree program advances students knowledge in macro- and micro-economic theory. It also provides students with econometrics as well as developing their communication skills. The MS Mathematical Sciences portion of the dual degree program is designed to equip graduate students with a solid foundation of mathematics, statistics, and real-world applications.

                              • Minimum required score:

                                7

                                The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

                              • Minimum required score:

                                550

                                The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

                              • Minimum required score:

                                77

                                The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

                              Academic Requirements

                              You need the following GPA score:

                              Required score: 3

                              Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

                              Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

                              • At least 2.75 undergraduate GPA.
                              • At least 18 credit hours of upper-level math courses beyond calculus.
                              • Complete the prerequisite preparation in intermediate microeconomic theory, intermediate macroeconomic theory and statistical analysis , plus at least one semester of calculus.
                              • Achieve a score of 900 or higher on the following formula: 100 times the grade point average (computed on a 4.00 scale) plus two times the combined score on the quantitative and verbal portion of theGraduate Record Exam
