Program overview

The Graduate Diploma in Economics provides a general overview of macroeconomic, microeconomic, and econometric theories and methods. Course materials and resources are designed for students who want to pursue their studies at more advanced levels and for working professionals interested in economics as a secondary field. Economists recognize that today’s policy makers and business leaders require deep knowledge of economic applications and policies. Now more than ever, we need critical minds with a broad foundation in the field to study the trade-offs between growth and pollution, public and private medical services, and many other pressing issues that affect our daily lives. In addition to numerous theoretical and applied research interests in economics, our professors are engaged in various multidisciplinary projects - contributing to publications in statistics, sociology, and medical research, as well as in government policy reports and media opinion pieces.
