Are you interested in becoming an economically impactful entrepreneur? Are you interested in contributing to Central Asia's economic development? Are you keen to build strong institutions and promote sound economic policies? Are you concerned with how Central Asia's economies fit into the global economy? If so, UCA's Economics programme is for you.
UCA aims to train economists who are strategic thinkers and can serve as effective policy makers in trade and foreign direct investment and practical analysts who understand the complexities of Central Asian and global economies.
The programme will address both global economic concepts and processes and Central Asian emerging economies and opportunities. It will equip you to lead regional policy making to generate economic reforms and contribute to sound public policy and private sector growth.
The curriculum is designed in collaboration with the National Research University's Higher School of Economics in Moscow and the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, Latvia.
You will have access to the University's Institute of Public Policy and Administration, which fosters rigorous inquiry into public policy related to socio-economic development in Central Asia and has strong partnerships with government ministries across the region. UCA Economics Programme is practice-based, enabling you to study and experience the inextricable link between entrepreneurship and economic development through internships and other opportunities.
