Admission

Minimum entry requirement

Applicants must have a first degree from university or institution of higher education, or provide documentation indicating that they will earn such a first degree before enrollment in MSc in Economics program. An undergraduate degree in economics is not required. However, students should have strong quantitative skills and good command of English. Applicants with solid quantitative background (e.g. first degree in Mathematics, Engineering) are highly encouraged to apply.

Required exams

Entry exams include English language proficiency test (can be substituted by official TOEFL or IELTS certificate) and AUCA admission exam in mathematics and essay writing (can be substituted by GRE).

If you have an official letter from the university stating that the language of instruction is English, you do not need to take the English language exam. You are also exempt from the entrance exam with an official TOEFL certificate (min. 480 PBT, 54 iBT) or IELTS (min. 5) certificate.

For exemption from the entrance exam in mathematics, you need to have minimum scores in GRE (quantitative part, at least 140 out of 170). AUCA graduates do not need to take entrance exam in English and mathematics (if they took it when they entered the bachelor’s program).
