Department of Economics
Located in Coral Gables in the School of Business Administration, the Department of Economics of the University of Miami is devoted to high-quality research and teaching, as well as to serve our local community. The Department offers a Master's degree and a Ph.D. in Economics. The Department houses the Business School and Art and Sciences Bachelor's degree programs in Economics, and contributes in several MBA diplomas including the most recent online programs.
The faculty regularly publishes in the very top general-interest and field Economics journals, and attends international conferences. The faculty is composed of a very diverse group of researchers in a variety of fields linked to Applied Economics, Economic Theory, and Macroeconomics. Please, go to our faculty directory for research conducted by our individual faculty. The Department hosts internal and external seminars, and regularly organizes conferences in various fields.
Our Master's in Economics lasts for eight months. This program develops the economic foundations and problem-solving skills for the analysis of business sectors, economic policies, and the broader global economy. It should be of interest for students that specialize in various areas of applied economics and business, as well as to pursue other graduate programs. Our Ph.D. program usually takes five years, and it is just research-oriented. This is in line with outstanding Ph.D. programs in Departments of Economics.
As of Fall of 2015, we have welcomed Esteban Petruzello, who has joined our Department as an Assistant Professor. The Department is planning to expand in various areas to serve the needs of the University of Miami and the Graduate School of Business.
