Graduate Programs in Applied Computational Economics


Clover University’s STEM certified, professional graduate programs in Applied Computational Economics focus on the more technical areas of economics. Our programs equip graduates with the hard skills and analytical knowledge needed to be job-ready and succeed in today's increasingly competitive work environment.

Computational economics relies on the use of rigorous quantitative analysis based on the use of mathematical and statistical methods, econometrics, computer science and data analysis. As the amount of data produced and collected in sectors throughout the economy increases, economists rely ever more frequently on quantitative tools to solve analytically and statistically formulated problems.

Well Rounded Professional Programs

The well-rounded programs provide graduates with advanced skills in applied computational economics. Additionally, our programs focusing on sustainable energy provide graduates with an in-depth understanding of the nuances of the modern energy industry. The curricula for these highly specialized programs were developed by Clover University faculty and leadership, its Board of Advisors and with feedback from industry experts and employers.

All courses focus on getting graduates job-ready and foster hard skills as well as analytical skills and presentation and writing competencies required to communicate findings to a variety of stakeholders. The Master of Science in Applied Computational Economics and Sustainable Energy program also includes a capstone project that allows graduates to sharpen their research skills by working closely on their individual project with two advisors. Graduates thereby have the opportunity to analyze a problem, working on a question from beginning to end and communicate the results in the form of a presentation and a report. The coursework completed for the Graduate Certificates in Applied Computational Economics can be fully transferred to either the Master of Science in Applied Computational Economics or the Master of Science in Applied Computational Economics and Sustainable Energy.
