Well Rounded Professional Programs - Quick Overview
Applied Computational Economics
Clover University’s STEM certified, professional graduate programs in Applied Computational Economics focus on the more technical areas of economics. 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.
Applied Computational Economics and Sustainable Energy
Our graduate programs in Applied Computational Economics and Sustainable Energy provide your employees with a rigorous training in quantitative analysis based on the use of mathematical and statistical methods, econometrics, computer science and data analysis while focussing on the energy industry. Energy issues are complex and this program will provide graduates with in-depth knowledge of the entire energy industry and the computational as well as analytical tools to succeed in a variety of roles as energy economist. The ability to identify problems, analyze data, perform predictive analysis, and draw meaningful conclusions is crucial to successfully participate in the energy transition and in shaping the future of the energy industry in the United States and worldwide.
The Graduate Certificate in Applied Computational Economics is designed to provide graduates with an advanced foundation in macro- and micro-economics and relies heavily on data, statistics and math. The rigorous curriculum gives graduates an excellent toolbox to provide solutions to a wide variety of economic problems based on computational analysis. The coursework completed for the Graduate Certificate in Applied Computational Economics can be fully transferred to the Master of Science in Applied Computational Economics or the Master of Science in Applied Computational Economics and Energy.
