The research-oriented Master Programs in Quantitative Economics, Quantitative Finance, Quantitative Management, Quantitative Marketing, and Law and Quantitative Economics, collectively called MSQ Programs, are unique in that their first-year students participate in the same set of analytically rigorous and quantitatively oriented courses in economics, finance, law and economics, management, and/or marketing that are taken by the first-year Ph.D. Program students. Students who complete the first year of the MSQ Program with strong success have the option and are strongly encouraged to join the GSEFM Ph.D. Program in their area of concentration. Other students in their second year in the MSQ Program have the option to enroll in courses with an emphasis on policy issues and/or on issues of implementation. Students leaving GSEFM with a terminal Master degree will be in a strong position to serve as analytical experts in international institutions, government, or the private sector.

A practicing Development Economist must be, first and foremost, a very good economist, trained in the tools of the trade, from micro and macro theory, to advanced econometric techniques. But a Development Economist should be much more, and should display sensitivity towards and knowledge of diverse cultural settings, know how to engage key stakeholders in developing countries (from the government to local NGOs), and be capable of getting things done in the field in conditions that are sometimes quite difficult.
