Economics Program

The Economics (MEc) program seeks to produce researchers and practitioners who possess expert knowledge in economics-related fields and who are capable of undertaking research in a wide range of fields relating to relevant academic and practical issues. The goal of the program is not only to equip students with the knowledge, skills and approaches needed to be able to analyze economic activities, formulate intelligent economic policy, and offer recommendations on ways to make organizations more efficient, but also to help them acquire the ability to effectively apply relevant economic theory, whether working at a government agency, think-tank or business enterprise. Our graduates have the ability to analyze information relating to economic systems and socioeconomic phenomena from a global perspective and in light of the processes of historical change, so that they are able to exercise a high level of historical awareness and put forward policy proposals for solving significant problems. In order to fully master the core curriculum of macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics, students need to possess good mathematical and statistical skills. The MEc program actively seeks to enroll mature students with a background in the sciences who may not have studied economics or business administration as undergraduates but who possess a genuine interest in economics.

MEc program classes are held on weekday evenings and on Saturdays at TMU’s Marunouchi Satellite Campus.
