   Graduate Program
 In August of 2020, the Mises Institute welcomed its first cohort of graduate students to the new graduate program offering a Master of Arts degree in Austrian economics .
The average undergraduate GPA of the inaugural cohort was 3 .6, with 67 percent already holding at least one graduate degree .
The Institute’s new and exciting program incorporates distance education tools to accommodate students and faculty residing in various locations and time zones . Using the learning management system Canvas®, the Mises Institute is able to present Austrian economics interactively while also operating its graduate program entirely online .
Instructors of the program include Senior Fellows, Fellows, and Associated Scholars, who introduce the material in a challenging and compelling way to encourage scholarship . The master’s program requires completion of twenty-four semester hours of coursework and a thesis suitable for publication
in a peer-reviewed journal .
This long-awaited and much- needed program is a fulfillment of Mises’s and Rothbard’s dreams of a rigorous graduate school dedicated to the study of Austrian economics and free market principles .

  “
The Mises Institute’s graduate school
is off to a strong start! I’m teaching microeconomics to the second cohort of students and it is a stimulating experience for me . My students are wonderfully engaged and display the intellectual
rigor needed to tackle the demanding Rothbardian curriculum . The course requires a prodigious amount of reading and then online discussion, which has
been rich and thought provoking . I wish
I’d had the opportunity to study the great Austrian school texts during my own graduate school . What an opportunity for these students . Watch for great things ” to come from them in the future!
