M.A.-International Economics and Finance(Lemberg Program)
Whether you plan to manage investment portfolios, design a government's trade and financial policies, or oversee a company's finances, you will need to understand the forces driving the global economy and the operations of capital markets. The IBS MA is an innovative, two-year degree that targets these skills: it's timely and practical, designed to help you succeed. Compared to an MBA, it provides depth in finance and economics. And unlike an economics degree, it's applied rather than theoretical. Is the MA right for you? Yes - if you find international issues exciting, and plan a career that involves sophisticated analysis in finance, business and/or economic policy. The MA hones technical skills, provides international experience, and connects you to real challenges in firms, economies, and financial markets. (If you see your career rather in managing organizations, you might also consider our MBA.) Qualified Brandeis undergraduates should consider our BA/MA program, which allows for completion of the MAief with one year of post-BA study.
