I would like to apply for master programs in finance and economics in Europe/Canada for 2013. Although the private sector is not yet completely out of the equation, I will probably apply for a PhD afterwards.
As it is clear to me that I want to specialize in financial economics, I am interested in programs which allow me to focus on this area.
In my opinion the LSE program is the perfect fit and I will apply for it.
Unfortunately, admission to the LSE program is quite competitive so I am looking for alternatives which allow a major focus on this area.
I fear that many of the "standard" MSc Econonomics do not allow me to focus enough on financial economics while many of the "standard" MSc in Finance are only suited for the industry.
That is why I would like to know which of the master programs I should consider?
From my current point of view this seems to be:
Finance & Economics at Warwick?
M.Phil Economics or MSc Fin. Econ at Oxford?
MPhil Finance and Economics at Cambridge?
MSc in Finance at BGSE?
MSQE Frankfurt, MSc Economics Bonn (I am from Germany)?
What are other relevant alternatives?
