Master of Science Programs
The Hayek School of Economics’ Master of Science (M.S.) programs provide a greater degree of focus on the fields of economics, political economy, finance, international economics, marketing and management than more general MBA programs which other universities offer. In a learning environment that is equipped with the latest technology, the Hayek School of Economic’ Master of Science students gain knowledge in these fields and learn to think strategically from the world-renowned faculty and top practitioners.
We strive to develop functional economists, not mathematicians. Our graduates have obtained doctoral fellowships and research positions at a number of top U.S. and European Universities. Many of our graduates, however, have successfully applied their training to non-academic fields, pursuing distinguished careers in the government, international organizations and private sector. Our goal is to develop scholars who lead. The Hayek School of Economics reflects classical conservative economic ideology for which Friedrich August Hayek was best known, including the defense of free-market capitalism against the socialist and collectivist thought.
Our faculty is comprised only of exceptional academics. Becoming a faculty member at the Hayek School of Economics is a highly selective process. Our faculty predominantly consists of senior level American professors who are leaders in their fields of study and have made significant contributions to the scholarship and science of economics and its subfields. Many of our faculty members also hold advanced post-graduate degrees from prestigious European universities.
The Hayek School of Economics takes a global approach to education. We frequently recruit senior level academics from Europe in order to provide critical expertise in certain areas of study, such as foreign perspectives, globalization, international financial and economic organizations, international relations and political science. The faculty boasts of several eminent European professors and Doctor Academicians, which is the highest academic honor in Europe.
