Congratulations to our 2019 graduating MA class—Eashita Dabas, Zack Moline, Jesus Arias, Brendan Jewitt, Melanie Varkey, Felipe Alonso, and Kolawole Adedapo—for successfully completing their degrees this year!

The Department of Economics' Master's of Arts program runs for twelve months, involving both course work and a major research project. Our new graduates will now move into careers in the banking and financial sector or into analyst jobs with various organizations. Some will also be moving into a PhD program to continue pursuing their research—either remaining at the University of Calgary or attending other institutions.

Two students also received special awards:

  • Melanie Varkey received the MA Teaching Assistant Excellence Prize for exemplary performance as a TA in ECON 201 and ECON 203
  • Brendan Jewitt received the MA Economic Theory Prize in recognition of his commitment to academic excellence in the core theory courses

Congratulations and good luck on all future endeavours!
