Real-world Economics

The world economy has not yet emerged from the 2008 financial crisis. Below-target growth and tax revenue threaten critical public expenditure on healthcare, education, social protection, and climate change adaptation…YET mainstream economics programs continue to use the same approach. The Levy Graduate Programs in Economic Theory and Policy offer real answers to real-world problems.

Graduate Programs in Economic Theory and Policy

The Levy Economics Institute Graduate Programs in Economic Theory and Policy were created to offer students an alternative to mainstream programs in economics and finance. These innovative programs combine a rigorous course of study with the exceptional opportunity to participate in advanced economics research.
