Economic Policy: MA
from the Bulletin
The Master of Arts in Economic Policy (MAEP) program is an intensive three-semester course of study combining a strong foundation in economics with the management skills appropriate for students interested in careers as policy analysts and decision-makers in government, nonprofit institutions, international organizations, and the private sector. The core of the program provides a foundation in economic theory and its application, quantitative methods, and the basic tools of management analysis. The MAEP permits in-depth specialization in two policy and management fields drawn from courses offered in both the Department of Economics and Boston University’s School of Management. Up to four course credits can be earned through internships providing on-site working experience relevant to economics research and policy making.
