Economics and Business

for Prospective MA Applicants

Welcome to the MA program in Economics in the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership!

We primarily consider grades in undergraduate coursework. Typically applicants will have coursework in: 

  1. Introductory and Intermediate Microeconomics
  2. Introductory and Intermediate Macroeconomics
  3. Calculus
  4. Statistics

Students that have not completed the above required courses might be accepted conditionally. Those students will have to take the rest of the required courses at the undergraduate level within the school. In consultation with the MA Director they might simultaneously take a few graduate courses. Conditional admission depends on many factors including overall GPA, recommendation letters, personal statement and performance in the bachelor’s degree. 

There is a minimum TOEFL requirement for international students.


Students interested in applying for admission to the M.A program in Economics should follow the step-by-step process outlined on the graduate admissions page of the City College website. The deadline for fall admissions is April 1st and November 15th for Spring admission. 

Additional information about applying to graduate programs at CCNY can be found at the web page of the Office of Graduate Admissions. At this site, you will find a link to the online application system.



Deadline to apply for Fall Semester is May 1st.

Deadline to apply for Spring Semester is November 20th.
