Through Stanford's outstanding graduate program, students acquire the background and skills necessary for careers as research economists, university teachers and as practitioners of economics.

The curriculum includes a comprehensive treatment of modern theory and empirical techniques. Students are exposed to a broad range of applied fields, and elect specialization in two fields of particular interest. The typical student can expect to spend two full years completing the required course work. The remaining time in the program is usually spent engaging in dissertation research and participating in seminars.
