International and Development Economics

The rapid pace of globalization has increased the demand for professionals with training in international economics and economic development. The University of San Francisco offers a unique Master's in International and Development Economics – one that integrates rigorous training in quantitative economics with overseas field research.

Students in the program study and analyze how market forces can be harnessed to free developing countries from cycles of poverty, and to understand the importance of institutions that regulate these forces. Students are prepared for professional work as development researchers, program analysts, policymakers and practitioners for government agencies, international business, non-profits and NGOs in developing countries. Our graduates also pursue further studies in Ph.D. programs.

The Department of Economics also offers a Master's in Economics, with a focus on Financial Economics.
