MDAE has been created to cater to the growing demand for practitioner or ‘market’ economists in industry, policy think tanks, and government. The dearth of post-graduate courses that marry strong theoretical foundations with applied skills for a rapidly globalizing economy has left several lucrative opportunities emerging in the market underutilized.

Armed with this foundational training, graduates from MDA’s comprehensive educational programs can understand and analyze important economic events not only through the lens of theory but contemplate the lens of theory through actual economic events.
