MA Economics, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU)

Students in MA (Applied Economics) program can earn two Degrees in two years from two universities. Students spend the first year (two semesters) at the CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Bangalore campus and study MA (Applied Economics) as per CHRIST (deemed to be University) Curriculum. Upon successful completion of the first year, the selected students for the exchange can opt to study two semesters in VCU, USA as per the VCU curriculum. Upon successful completion of the second year (1+1) program at VCU, the students will be awarded the degree by VCU and on submission of VCU credits to CHRIST, the MA (Applied Economics) degree from CHRIST.

MA in Economics at VCU is a quantitative-intensive program and is a ‘STEM’ degree. Students graduating from STEM program have attractive job opportunities.  International students in STEM programs can undertake a paid internship for up to three years without an H1-B visa through the facility of Optional Practical Training*.

Optional Practical Training (OPT):
OPT is a paid internship facility provided for international students under student visa (work visa is not required). The main purpose of OPT is to help students acquire practical experience in the field of their study.  Normal duration of OPT is 12 months. However, students in STEM specializations can extend OPT by another two years (24 months).

 

Note: The students for the exchange programmes will be selected from the MA Applied Economics Programme. The number of seats for exchange programmes, though not fixed, is very limited and depends on the requirement and the decision of both the universities. The selection is done through the criteria set by the Department of Economics at CHRIST.
