Economics department mofidies master's
By Victoria Calabrese
The economics department at Cleveland State University has modified its master’s program starting fall semester, according to Professor Vijay Mathur.
“We needed to look at industry in a different light,” said Mathur. “How organizations behave strategically when entering the market is a needed focus.”
The current master’s program is dominated by theory, economics and mathematics classes.
Students are required to take specific classes with few options. The new program will allow students to choose two electives.
These electives cover international trade and finance, urban economics, environmental and natural resource economics, the economics of law, and finance.
A competition and strategy course has been added to fit with the program’s new focus.
Mathur said that students in the master’s program are trained to think like economists. They are qualified to get jobs in many different industries.
