THE MASTER OF APPLIED ECONOMICS PROGRAM IS NOW THE MASTER OF QUANTITATIVE ECONOMICS

The MAE is changing its name to MQE, Master of Quantitative Economics! 

We are pleased to announce, that effective Spring 2021, the Master of Applied Economics will revise the name of the program to “Master of Quantitative Economics” or “MQE”. This change will better reflect the quantitative nature of the curriculum to align with industry trends and market demands.  Students applying to the program for the 2021-22 cohort will receive a master’s degree in “Quantitative Economics”.

More information will be updated on this website so please check back. For now, please continue to contact us at mae-office@econ.ucla.edu.

Our intensive program offers unique opportunities for students to master theory and application of econometrics, micro and macroeconomics, enhance their skills in written and oral communication of economic ideas, and gain hands-on experience in elective courses. Students will also share ideas with major economic industry leaders, further preparing them for success in the job market upon graduation.
