Hi all, I was asked some time ago to post an update on my experience in the MS in Applied Economics program online at University of North Dakota. I am halfway through my 1st semester, currently enrolled in Empirical Methods in Economics and Mathematics for Economists. I have found the courses challenging, yet rewarding. The faculty have been responsive to questions and allow for flexibility in scheduling proctored exams. The material is indeed graduate level. Although there are undergraduates enrolled in the same classes, it is UND's policy that additional work be completed by graduate students. The technology for course delivery is excellent, using the Blackboard system. All in all, I am very satisfied thusfar in my UND MSAE program.
