    European masters choices

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi,

    Some background:
    I am a European student looking to apply for PhD in Economics. I have a European three year BSc in economics and mathematics, which is why I am applying for a masters program.
    I have (very) solid LOR's and good research experience. I'm open to PhD either in Europe or in the US (prefer US or UK).

    Interests: Microeconomics (public econ, pol econ, theory) and Finance (macro finance), but subject to change obviously.

    I have these choices for MSc so far:
    - Warwick MSc Economics (https://warwick.ac.uk/study/postgrad...-2018/econmsc/)
    - Barcelona GSE MSc Finance (2nd choice, was rejected for Econ--though they are basically the same program) (Finance Program | Barcelona Graduate School of Economics)
    - Sciences Po Masters in Economics (http://www.sciencespo.fr/ecole-docto...er-s-economics)
    - Manchester MSc Financial econ (was a safety)

    Waiting for:
    - Paris School of Economics (APE Masters)
    - Dual degree QEM (Quantitative Economics) at Paris and Sciences-Po http://econ.sciences-po.fr/dual-degr...tive-economics
    - Bologna LMEC

    I haven't taken the GRE, which is why I didn't apply to LSE and US masters. The GRE is only given once per year where I live, so I am planning to take it this summer/fall when I have moved to a bigger city for my MSc (where it's hopefully given more often).

    I asked my letter writers, and one recommended Sciences Po due to it being two years (I'd reach a higher level in the micro sequence), and they have some good names in micro (Robin etc.) The other one recommended Warwick.

    Cost of tuition is not an issue. I am a bit concerned about the one-year length, I would prefer the two-year courses but I'm open for feedback.

    If you're really into micro, and political economy especially, you should probably consider ECARES. It has a two year Research Master, with a strong faculty in micro theory and political economy.
