We understand and sympathize with the difficulty that many of you have faced during the Covid-19 crisis, and imagine that many of your future plans have been upset. Given that some of you may be looking for new options for the fall, we have decided to re-open admissions to the Masters of Science in Quantitative Economics (MSQE) to start this fall (2020) until June 1.
The MSQE program is a three semester, rigorous calculus based master’s program in Economics that is designed to provide students with advanced skills in econometrics, forecasting, machine learning, empirical finance and other quantitative techniques that are highly valued in the labor market. Students will learn to program in both R and Python. Some of our recent graduates from the MSQE program have landed jobs at Cigna, The Hartford, Lockheed Martin, McLagan, Travelers and Pratt & Whitney.
Economic majors and minors who have completed at least two semesters of calculus who are strong in mathematics, or math and statistics majors who have completed some economics coursework (or are willing to complete coursework over the summer), would be excellent candidates for this program. If you would like more information about how to apply, please contact Ms. Rosanne Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have general questions about the program focus and content, please contact Professors Kim at email@example.com or Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is also available at the following website https://msqe.econ.uconn.edu/.
We wish you well during the next very challenging year and hope that this expanded application period will provide some of you with a needed opportunity.
