The Levy Institute has published 1661 research publications to date.


The Levy MS curriculum consists of 16 intensive courses (seven core courses, three directed research classes, and six electives) completed over a two-year period. The program also requires each student to complete a one-year research practicum and a thesis project, while offering the flexibility to specialize in one or more research areas.  


Educational Objectives

The goal of the Levy MS program is to prepare students for a successful career in applied or academic economic research. Candidates receive rigorous training in economic theory, policy, methodology, and modeling. They are also exposed to the research and applied policy work of Levy Institute scholars, which covers a broad range of issue areas. 


Career Objectives

The Levy MS program prepares graduates for successful careers in the for-profit, nonprofit, and public sectors. The course of study encourages students to specialize in one of the research areas of the Levy Institute. Our strong relationships with organizations such as the International Labour Organization, United Nations, International Monetary Fund, World Trade Organization, World Bank, and US Federal Reserve System ensures that the skills required by organizations such as these are reflected in our curriculum.
