    Best Msc Economics program in the UK

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hello. I am a British citizen wanting to eventually travel to the US to study a Phd in Economics there. I am in the process of completing a postgraduate diploma in Economics at the University of Essex. So far it looks like I will pass with a distinction. I am wondering apart from the obvious schools (London School Economics, UCL, Oxbridge, Warwick) which other schools in the UK offer very good msc economics programs? thanks.

    Other than those, none (not even Warwick imo).

    York and Nottingham if you like econometrics

    Mind you however, they don't belong in the same class as Oxbridge, LSE and UCL

    Don't forget about your own program: Essex.

    Certain UK rankings name them as the top program or one top 3.

    A prof from the UK gave me this list (I believe it is in order of his ranking):
    UCL, LSE, Oxford, LBS, Warwick, Essex, Southampton

    (Cambridge is not on the list, he does not think very highly of it)
    Currently Attending: Queen's MA Econ

    Attending Fall 2009: NYU PhD

    this must be a joke! though partially true, professors at my uni would put it this way LSE, Oxford, (UCL, Warwick, Cambridge) together, essex, york/nottingham (I go to Warwick for my undergrad, choosing between Oxford and Cambridge for the MPhil (LSE is too expensive!))

    One of my professors (who got his PhD from Cambridge) said the same thing.

    Edinburgh is very strong in micro, but there are only a handful of people doing anything else.

    My 2 cents:

    With econ background (and some good letter of recommendation in place):

    LSE EME, Ox MPhil, LSE MSc, UCL MSc, Cam MPhil, Warwick MSc

    Without those things:

    Ox MPhil, UCL MSc, Cam MPhil, LSE EME, LSE MSc, Warwick MSc

    The first list is a prestige list. The second list favours programs where the teaching is better and there is greater interaction with faculty for the the purpose of getting recommendations (in other words you can get something concrete out of the program).
