Core graduate courses are taught at a level that requires entering students to have successfully completed courses in intermediate microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, calculus, matrix algebra, and statistics. Students who have not completed the prerequisite material, but who have apparent potential for graduate study, may be admitted to the program on a provisional basis. A math review course is offered prior to Fall semester each year for all incoming graduate students.
Students must submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores, official transcripts of all degree coursework, three letters of recommendation, and an application fee. Foreign students must also include scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a score of 550 or higher, and the Test of Spoken English (TSE/SPEAK) with a score of 50 or higher.
