This challenging 11-month, full-time masters program is guided by a conceptual framework that focuses on advanced economic theories and reasoning, quantitative and econometrics skills, and the application of these tools used to produce a research project and/or policy analysis in an international setting.
Studying in Washington, D.C., students move through the program in a cohort format and elect to specialize in Macroeconomics and International Finance or International Trade and Development. In addition, the interdisciplinary nature of the school allows students to add additional international affairs courses to their M.I.E.F. curriculum. SAIS is currently recruiting candidates for its inaugural cohort slated to begin July 2014.
