Your master’s degree comes with a side of the world

A graduate degree from BU is your ticket to global opportunities. With comprehensive career development resources at their fingertips, our Economics master’s students have gone on to become cabinet ministers, PhD candidates, investment bankers, and Forbes’ 30 under 30 economists. Nearly 20% of our students have been sponsored by foreign governments, central banks, and Fulbright scholarships. Our graduates work at places like Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the Federal Reserve System, the World Bank, Cornerstone Research, and PricewaterhouseCoopers. They also become entrepreneurs: founding their own start-ups and owning firms such as London Economics International. They are analysts and consultants, researchers and policymakers. Some of them continue their quest for knowledge by pursuing their PhDs at places like Harvard, Chicago, and Princeton.
