About

The primary goal of the Economics program from University of Pennsylvania is to produce outstanding research economists. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • The program at the University of Pennsylvania is designed to ensure that students acquire a thorough knowledge of economic theory, econometric methods, and the structure of modern economies, before beginning their own research under faculty supervision. While the program covers all major areas of economics, it has particular strengths in micro theory (especially game theory), empirical microeconomics, and modern macroeconomics.
  • The Graduate Group in Economics requires that students complete at least 16 courses in economics or related fields, of which a maximum of eight may be transferred from other institutions. Some of these course units may be earned by attending and participating in workshops. After two years in the program, students are expected to begin their dissertations.

Programme Structure

  • Microeconomic Theory 
  • Econometrics: Fundamentals 
  • Topics in Public Economics
