Graduate Programmes in Economics

The Lahore School of Economics will be accepting applications for its MSc Economics, MS Economics and MPHIL Economics programmes next semester. The Lahore School’s Graduate Economics degrees are designed to provide rigorous academic training to students whose careers are or will be in the area of economics or economic policy. The curriculum of the graduate programmes have been designed to help students develop a solid foundation of analytical skills that will be valuable to students who continue on to pursue graduate degrees in economics and also for those who want to enter the profession (as either instructors or practitioners) right after completing the degree. The research and practical components of the programmes are designed to produce graduates who have an understanding of cutting edge academic and policy research. A significant number of the graduates continue their academic training to obtain further degrees in various areas of economics in highly ranked international programmes or progress to the teaching track at the Lahore School.

The MSc Economics programme is a one-year taught programme while the MS Economics programme is a one-year taught programme followed by a one semester MS research project. Finally, the MPHIL Economics programme is a one year taught programme followed by a half year MPHIL research thesis. Details about these programmes are available from the Graduate Programmes Office. The coursework for programmes is the same and is taught by the senior faculty of the department of economics.
