A New Master’s Degree in Financial Economics
A new Master of Science degree in financial economics was launched in the fall of 2012. Tyler Bowles, head of the Economics and Finance Department, said this degree will prepare students for demanding careers in the financial services industry with the requisite quantitative analytical expertise to succeed in that challenging and challenged industry.
The degree includes a macroeconomics course that has been significantly redesigned under the direction of Tyler Brough and Ben Blau. This course now includes more rigorous quantitative and econometric components.
