Accelerated Master’s in Economics @ UF – Info Session

Thursday, October 1, 2020,5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Are you interested in pursuing a graduate degree in economics? Are you concerned by the required math background? Are you more interested in business, consulting, or public policy applications of your economics training?
Dr. Thomas Knight (NCF ’03) will introduce a new three-semester professional M.A. in Economics program at the University of Florida. This program focuses on developing highly employable data and econometric skills and is accessible to most high performing economics AOCs or slashes regardless of your math background.
Because the curriculum is designed with nonacademic careers in mind, applicants are not required to demonstrate experience with advanced mathematics and statistics courses. While that background is certainly helpful, it is not required to be a competitive applicant. The only firm course requirements are: Intermediate Microeconomics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, and Econometrics.
Our third cohort will start the program in January 2021. Applications are currently being accepted for this cohort. Interested potential applicants​ should reach out to Dr. Knight, Program Director and Department Chair (thomas.knight@ufl.edu).
