The answer to this is simple
If you're not willing to put in 200+ hardcore hours of study, you will NOT get into a 2000+ hour program which is worth your time. You might even end up with some scholarship cash out of the ordeal. Imagine being paid $100/hour to brush up on the basics. Yeah, that matters.

Bite the bullet. Study hard and prove to the world that you're not so stupid/lazy that you can't score a 330GRE or 700GMAT.

For what it's worth, I did not perform admirably on the ACT in HS. I devastated the GRE.

you could try AAP at Johns Hopkins Kreiger--- i have no idea about how the program actually goes, but it's a part-time online program under CA&S

Yeah, I realized that. For anyone searching on the internet right now if you want to get into a decent program and have possibility of getting a nice job it's necessary to get into a prestigious school. Thank you for your contribution. I shall now post a list of schools that offer MA's in economics and aren't meant for pursuing Ph.D programs unless you want to:
Unfortunately a lot of programs are geared towards preparing you for a Ph.D and don't really offer MAs(imagine a masters in economics at University of Chicago) but some schools offer advanced diplomas in economics(but I don't think they carry that mush leverage)

Good luck!

I don't know if it is true, but I often hear that....
pure theory economics as a Master's degree is a bust if phD is not pursued.

Not necessarily. Just through prestige and networking alone you can get into finance but the programs I posted offer a pretty decent set of quantitative and analytical skills.

a quick sampling of the Georgetown Econ says that it requires GRE and cannot use GMAT for substitution.

contradiction to your article title.
