The UB Department of Economics is committed to the educational goals of the University at Buffalo. These include providing students the basic knowledge required to understand how economic problems are approached, and imparting the basic qualitative and quantitative tools used by economists to solve economic problems. The Department is dedicated to contribute to these goals by devoting efforts to better serve the needs of our undergraduate and graduate students, by engaging in cutting edge research, and by continuously improving the design of our academic programs, our curriculum and our course offerings.
We would like to announce a new STEM MS degree program, Econometric and Quantitative Economics.
