Canada's Carleton University Launches an MBA / MA in Economics

New dual-degree program can be completed in 20 months

Canada's Carleton University Sprott School of Business has announced plans to launch a new dual-degree program that combines an MBA with an MA in Financial Economics.

The program will combine a theoretical knowledge of economics with business skills. “This dual degree combines the theoretical and quantitative orientation of the Economics MA program with the MBA’s focus on managerial applications and management skills," according to Keir Armstrong, chair of the Department of Economics.

"This double skill set will give graduates an important advantage when they enter the work world.”

Students can complete the new program in 20 months, which includes a four-month long internship.

Potential students must meet the admissions requirements of both the MBA and the MA in Financial Economics. Among other requirements, this includes a GMAT score of at least 550, or a comparable GRE score.

The Sprott School of Business is one of 10 business schools in Canada that are accredited by AACSB International.

The new dual-degree MBA / MA in Financial Economics will launch this fall.
