Accelerated Masters of Arts in Economics (Minor/MA)

Only current KU undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the Accelerated MA program. If you are not a current undergraduate student at KU, please review the admission requirements for the regular MA program.

Our Minor/Accelerated MA program is available to KU undergraduate students minoring in Economics. The ideal candidate will have a strong math foundation and have a complementary major (e.g., Engineering or similar math-intensive major).  

Accelerated undergraduate-graduate degree tracks are increasingly becoming more common. A Master’s degree in Economics provides not only professional skills but also deeper foundational knowledge. This combination attracts employers and strengthens the profiles of students preparing for further study in doctoral programs. As a result, many students see a master’s degree as essential to their future success.
