BA/MA Program

Are you a Brandeis undergrad who already knows that you want to earn a master's degree in economics or finance, and wants to get the necessary skills at an accelerated pace? Qualified students can pursue a special five-year BA/MA track that, with one year of post-BA study, will allow for completion of Brandeis International Business School's (IBS) Master of Arts in International Economics and Finance - Lemberg Program (MA).

The BA/MA prepares students for World Ready careers in international finance, economics, consulting, business, and policymaking. Helping students to finish their graduate studies a year before their peers, it has proven especially helpful for positions that require strong analytical and technical skills.

The BA/MA requires 64 credits in business, economics and/or finance courses, including micro- and macro-economics and statistics, as well as a minimum of 26 credits in electives.

Timing the BA/MA Program: Undergraduates in their junior year may apply to the BA/MA program.
