Students in any graduate program of the Economics Department who have obtained a GPA of B or higher at the time of application and a grade of B+ or higher may apply to be moved from the regular stream of their program to the work integrated learning (WIL) stream associated with their degree program.

Although some graduates do pursue PhD studies in economics, policy analysis, or related areas, the primary purpose of the MAEP program is to prepare students for employment as economic analysts in a variety of public and private-sector organizations.
