|Additional Admission Requirements:||The normal requirement for admission to the master's program is a B.A. (Honours) (or the equivalent) in Economics, with an average grade of B+ or higher. Applicants to the M.A.-M.B.A. dual degree pathway must qualify for admission for both the M.A. Economics and the M.B.A. program.
Applicants are expected to have had adequate preparation in microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, econometrics, and mathematics. This could be satisfied, for example, by having completed undergraduate courses in advanced microeconomic theory, advanced macroeconomic theory, econometric theory and methods, mathematical analysis in economics, and statistical analysis in economics. Students with deficiencies in their preparation may have their program requirements extended accordingly.
Applicants who lack the required undergraduate preparation may be admitted to the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma program in Economics designed to raise their standing to honours status.
The Department may require certain applicants to write the Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test and the Advanced Test in Economics offered by the Educational Testing Service.
