Course Overview

The Master of Arts (MA) degree programme in economics is aimed at providing advanced training for students in the various branches of the economics discipline. Through the programme, students will be able to broaden their careers as researchers, educators and trainers in the public and private sectors as well as non-governmental/international organizations. Many qualified first degree holders of Egerton University and elsewhere have increasingly expressed interest in advancing their education in economics yet currently the university does not offer a Masters programme. As a result of its geographical position, Egerton University can capture a large reservoir of the young people willing to enrol in the programme. For many years, qualified Economic students from Egerton University have had to seek admission for an M.A degree in other Universities. The increasing demand for this programme necessitates that Egerton University offers it. In addition, Economics is in high demand both in the public sector as well as the private sector as well as in the region since there is an increasing demand for planners, analysts, economic managers, lecturers and researchers with knowledge of the functioning of the economy and modern analysis tools.
