Job Placements

Graduates of the FSU Applied Masters Program of Economics are strong competitors in business-oriented and other practical, non-academic, job markets. After successfully completing the program, students find that their knowledge and skills are substantially greater than those of undergraduate economics majors, and rival those of MBA graduates in the pursuit of first-time job placement. The FSU Applied Masters Program in Economics is unique in that it extends economics education beyond its traditional form and focuses on applying economics in a practical or business setting.

Beyond the educational value of the curriculum, the Applied Program offers students the essential networking opportunities that have come from developing close relationships with classmates and professors.
