While an undergraduate major in Economics is not a requirement, it is quite helpful.  It is strongly recommended that all applicants have taken undergraduate core courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics, both introductory and intermediate; econometrics, or an equivalent statistics course, preferably for the social sciences; and calculus.  In general, students with substantial coursework in economics, mathematics, and statistics, and with good grades in these courses, will receive preference in the admissions process.  A resume showing experience in economics-relevant work areas, while not a requirement, may also be helpful.

Supporting Documents Required:
  • Official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended
  • 2 letters of recommendation
  • Resume/CV
  • Personal Statement
