The Programme

Academic Calendar

Courses are offered in two 12-week long semesters from September to December and from January to May, and two 6-week long summer semesters. Each course requires 12 three-hour meetings. This may take place over twelve weeks or six weeks, with the course meeting twice a week in the latter case.

The MBA, MFin and MSc(BA) Programmes are offered on a modular basis in which each course is taught in six or seven weeks with two meetings each week.

Programme of Study

Students are required to successfully complete a total of ten courses, including three core courses (on microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics) and a capstone course. Students can choose to concentrate in one of the streams: Data Analysis Stream, Policy Stream and Theory Stream, according to their interests and career aspirations. They may elect to submit a dissertation in lieu of two elective courses. Assessment for each course may include assignments, mid-term examinations, project papers, other course work, as well as a final examination, which is normally held at the end of each course, unless otherwise specified.
