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.
