The Sobey Master of Applied Economics (MAE) program provides you with the skills you need to apply the tools of economic analysis to real-world issues in both public and business sectors. For a full time student, the program takes 12 months to complete, and with a part-time option, it is flexible enough to meet the needs of working professionals.
The MAE emphasizes the application of economic theory and econometric analysis to practical issues relevant to a range of fields, including: public economics; natural resources and environment; monetary systems; business finance; international trade.
The Sobey MAE’s focus on policy issues distinguishes it from a traditional, more theoretical Master’s program in economics.
Our graduates are employed at all levels of government, major banks, and in commercial enterprises like Irving.
