Cornell Economics is on the move! We have more than 50 faculty members, more than 750 majors, more than 100 PhD students, and serve over 5,000 students on campus each year. We are making improvements to our curriculum and student experience, are in the middle of an extensive capital campaign, and are aggressively expanding the faculty.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
Doctoral degree candidates must choose a major and at least two minor subjects, one of which can be basic analytical economics. Within the first year of study, Ph.D. students should complete requirements in mathematics and econometrics and pass qualifying examinations in micro- and macroeconomics. Completing those core requirements, and selecting a core committee member, satisfy the requirements of the basic analytical economics minor.
