Career Paths of Tufts Graduates
Students come to our program to develop strong quantitative skills and a deeper
understanding of economic theory in order to pursue their desired career paths.
Roughly one-third of our graduates use our program to enhance their math and
economic skills before applying to Ph.D. programs, mostly in economics but
sometimes in related fields (e.g. public health, public policy, labor relations,
statistics). The other two-thirds of our graduates get jobs in the public or
International students can benefit from Optional Practical Training (OPT) Work
Authorization upon graduation. Because our graduate program is designated as
STEM eligible, the OPT work authorization may be extended for an additional 17
months of work authorization (beyond the standard 12 months of OPT available to
F1 students). The STEM designation is indicated on I-20 forms provided to
matriculating students in the program.
