The MSc in Economics, with tracks in Applied Economics, Econometrics, and Quantitative Economics, is a programme offering in-depth study of economics and economic data analysis. It features a strong yet flexible core programme that includes an entry path for students without prior training in economics, a track core that sharpens your focus, and a wide range of electives in your chosen track. It also gives you the flexibility to take modules outside your track or programme so you can create a fulfilling programme suited to your needs.
The MSc in Economics is available for part-time or full-time study. The Applied Economics track is primarily for part-time study over two years, although this track can be studied full-time over a year if desired. Classes for the Applied Economics are held in the evenings or on Saturday morning. The Econometrics and Quantitative Economics tracks are primarily for full-time study over one year, although it is also available for part-time study by students who are able to attend weekday daytime classes. Please note that part-time study is available only to Singapore-based students (citizens, permanent residents, and those holding valid employment passes).
We seek students with a keen sense of purpose and curiosity about economics. While the programme offers those with economics undergraduate degrees an opportunity for in-depth study in economics, the programme is also suitable for those without prior economics training. Previous training in economics is not required. An Applied Economics track student could be a working professional who makes or will be making critical and strategic decisions in his/her company or public sector agency, who could benefit tremendously from a good understanding of the market and the economy. An Econometrics track student could be someone who wishes to learn more about data analysis with a special focus on economic, financial and social data. A Quantitative Economics track student might be someone with a strong technical background who wishes to prepare themselves for PhD level study in economics.
