The MACRM program is designed for those who want to become professional policy researchers or position themselves to pursue PhDs at top-tier institutions and provides an interconnected, intellectual experience.
This degree is an excellent choice for candidates who have strong quantitative backgrounds with exposure to mathematical probability and statistics, multivariate calculus, and matrix algebra.
During the 15-month program, students enroll in PhD core courses focusing on economic theory, game theory, advanced statistics/econometrics, political economy, and quantitative modeling in addition to the policy courses available in your area of interest.
Students must complete a two-quarter research apprenticeship with a faculty member, working 10 hours per week as a research assistant while developing ideas for a research paper to be written in your final quarters.
