The Economics Department offers two graduate programs: the MA in Economics and the MA in Global Logistics Accelerated Program.
“Having a graduate degree in economics from CSULB has helped me in many ways, sometimes in a nontraditional career choice such as software engineering. In addition to being able to engage in more thoughtful discussions at business meetings and economic conferences, I was able to apply what I learned to the development of our company’s software solution for nonprofits involving program tracking and evaluation.”
