Post Undergraduate Opportunities in Economics

Planning for life after graduation? There are many different pathways available after graduation.

Post Baccalaureate Programs (“Post-Baccs”) are an excellent bridge between undergraduate and graduate studies. In economics, they often offer research experience, mentorship, and free coursework! Below are fully funded Post Baccalaureate programs in Economics and Mathematics that provide these amenities and more.

Research Assistant (“RA”) positions offer recent graduates the opportunity to use their knowledge and skills in real world research projects with seasoned economists. In these positions, you will utilize programming languages like Stata and R to clean and analyze large data sets as well as relevant literature review to aid economists in their publications.
