    LSE vs GSE vs MIT

    Sponsored Ad:
    Dear all, I am facing a very hard decision. I am a phd candidate in economics, I won a scholarship that finance a year of study in a top university. I got accepted to three programs:

    1) GSE Master in Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets

    2) LSE Visiting Research Student
    With this program I have the possibility of working to my research project and at the same time attend 4 full courses (equivalent to a master). This is a non-degree program

    3) MIT - Advanced Study Program. This is a non-degree program that allows to attend 6 to 8 courses at the MIT.

    What would you do?

    The econ board on this site will be more likely to provide good feedback: PhD in Economics

    The answer depends on what your goals are and where you currently study.

    If you are already getting a PhD, then I don't think whether or not it offers a degree should matter much to you.

    Also, I am a little confused because it looks like you were looking into starting a masters at a couple of these schools this fall: http://www.urch.com/forums/graduate-...tml#post999647

    Yes you're right, I made a similar question few months ago but than the options have changed. I have excluded the GSE and need to decide between the two programs at the MIT and LSE. While the first is 6 time more expensive than the second, the two options are very similar.

    At the moment I am inclined toward the LSE (because of stimulating environment and the better network it would give me, given that I will probably look for a job in Europe after the phd) but I can't figure out how big is the gap between the two universities.
