Graduate Minor in Economic Data Analysis

About the Graduate Minor

Integral to the application of economics to decision making is the gathering and interpretation of data for planning, forecasting, and policy-making purposes. The graduate minor in Economic Data Analysis gives students a solid foundation in quantitative methods, including but not limited to econometric and statistical techniques. These quantitative techniques can be applied to a wide variety of fields outside of the economics discipline, such management and decision sciences, marketing, finance, engineering, public health, medicine and psychology. The minor consists of taking two courses that provide training in core statistical and econometric theory; students then choose from a variety of additional courses that provide the student with practical and hands on experience applying these tools to real life economic problems.
