AN ANALYSIS OF MATHEMATICS REQUIREMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PHD PROGRAMS IN ECONOMICS IN CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES
Keywords:admission requirements, mathematics requirements
This paper collects the data on mathematics requirements and recommendations for admission to Ph.D. programs in economics. There are several differences between this paper and Milkman and Marjadi (2017). This paper includes Ph.D. programs in Canada and compares them with the programs in the United States. Then, we split our sample based on whether we had obtained the mathematics course requirements directly from the programs through the questionnaire or phone interview or from the programs’ websites. We then analyzed the data to find that there are differences in those requirements and recommendations between programs in Canada and the United States. We also found that there are differences in those requirements and recommendations among different quality tiers.
