Masters of Applied Economics most affordable online program

Georgia Southern University has the most affordable online Master’s in Economics for 2019 according to SR Education Group. 

The Master of Science in Applied Economics (MSAE) in the Parker College of Business is a fully online graduate program that offers working professionals the opportunity to advance their career with the skills needed to perform analyses of financial markets, government regulation, international trade, health care and economic development, among other industries. 

Through the program, students learn to evaluate business decisions and policy programs while gaining skills to explain the progression of various events and their impact on the economy in a business or policy context. In addition to the MSAE, Georgia Southern University offers a graduate certificate in applied economics.

“We are very proud to be able to offer a high-quality program at an affordable price,” said Amanda King, Ph.D., professor of economics and MSAE coordinator. “Students who complete our program have a marketable, analytical skillset that allows them to make business decisions in a diverse and changing data-driven world.”

SR Education Group compiled a list of the most affordable MSAE programs in the nation, and Georgia Southern’s MSAE program ranked No. 1 with an annual tuition of $5,370. 

To be considered for this ranking, schools needed to be regionally accredited and offer at least one fully online degree in economics.
