Masters in Economics (MEcon)

Masters in Economics (MEcon) represents the revised format of the MA in Economics course offered by the Department of Economics until 2004. This is in response to the growing demand for postgraduate studies in Economics which involve both course-work and a substantial research component, particularly for those employed in academic and professional research institutions.

MEcon is a two year programme offered in two parts. In part I, the first academic year, the student will follow four taught courses. In part II, the second academic year, students who pass Part I, will undertake a research project and write a dissertation of not less than 30,000 words, under the guidance of a supervisor who is appointed by the Department of Economics.

MEcon classes are conducted only on Saturdays

Coordinator: Dr. K. Amirthalingam
