MA in Economics
ISET's MA program in Economics was launched in fall 2006 as a graduate program at Tbilisi State University, serving the entire South Caucasus region. The program takes students through a challenging two year curriculum, comparable in content and quality to the first two years of study in reputable Ph.D. programs in North America and Western Europe. All courses are taught in English by highly-qualified international faculty.
Each year, ISET enrolls up to 60 students from Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and other countries of the region. ISET graduates are working as economists in the private sector, National Banks, Ministries of Finance and Economic Development, international organizations and think tanks. Many are already teaching at other universities in the region. Many of our best graduates have entered Ph.D. programs in top universities in Northern America and Western Europe. ISET and the ISET Policy Institute itself hire academically-minded graduates to work closely with our faculty on teaching and research projects.
The program of study includes a major research component. During the second year of studies, students participate in research projects, and write a Master's thesis with the support of resident and visiting faculty.
Graduates receive a Master of Arts in Economics diploma from the International School of Economics at Tbilisi State University. ISET is recognized by The World Bank as one of five "centers of excellence" in economics education and research in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union.
