Master of Arts in Economics


The Master of Arts in Economics program provides excellent preparation for a career in economic research in government or the private sector, and for doctoral study. Some graduates of the M.A. program are currently employed in the banking and manufacturing industries as bankers, managers, and research analysts, and many others have gone on to receive Ph.D.s in economics from major universities. One distinct advantage of the MA in Economics program at Kent is its focus on the development of strong analytical and quantitative skills. Our students are well trained in the application of economic theory and methods of statistical analysis. 

Two tracks are offered in the program. The first, in Economic Analysis, is the general track intended for students who wish to pursue careers with government agencies, in the private sector, and/or pursue a doctoral degree in economics. The second, in Financial Economics, is primarily designed for students who wish to pursue careers in the financial services industry, including commercial banking, investment banking, insurance, real estate, and financial advising.
