Patch featured Dyson College of Arts and Sciences New Master of Science Program in "Pace University Offers New MS in Quantitative Economic Analysis"

Pace University is offering a new Master of Science in Applied Quantitative Economic Analysis and Policy on its New York City campus, the University today announced. It is the only master's program in the New York Metropolitan region that combines both public economic policy and quantitative analysis. The Department of Economics will offer the program beginning in fall 2020.

Housed in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, the program will provide hands-on training in quantitative reasoning tools, problem solving, and policy analysis through a very flexible on-line and hybrid delivery. It can be completed in as little as one year and no GRE/GMAT is required.

"The Pace Economics faculty has focused this new graduate program on techniques of data analytics and modeling applied to economics data, preparing graduates to undertake sophisticated analyses to solve economics problems relevant to setting effective policies in various sectors of the economy. These areas play to the strengths of our faculty and the growing need for these skills in re-establishing a strong post-pandemic economy," said Dean Nira Herrmann, PhD, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences.

"Our program's mission echoes Pace University's strategic objective of preparing our graduates to become professionals in the field of economics and be well-prepared to make positive contributions to the world of the future as economists, business leaders, and economic educators," said Joseph Morreale, PhD, program director and chair, Department of Economics.
