I can't provide you with first-hand info on BGSE, but I'm a faculty member at Tilburg U. If you want some more information on Tilburg (including pro's and con's), I'm happy to chat. In this case, send me a pm or email.
Well, it's about time to make a decision. I'm from Taiwan and we don't have many European PhD or Masters. 90 percent of the faculty are from the US in my department.
I browsed the website of the BGSE.
Their courses seem good. Advanced courses seem to be a good preparation for further PhD.
The teaching faculty is also outstanding in Europe, especially for the connection with the US.
The fee seems reasonable compared to the US. (Unfortunately I don't got any waive or scholarship and have some issues with the funding.)
Their PhD placement seems competitive as well.
Is there any consideration, particularly the negative one that I haven't considered?
I also got admission from Tilburg and lately applied for LSE but I guess Barcelona GSE is the by far best for me.
I would like to know the PhD foresight for the master degree in BGSE.
If you do not have any previous connections to UPF or a strong pedigree from another top school, you may only have a shot at top 10-20 US, if you rank among the top 5-10 persons in the Econ master class, otherwise not!
