    MSc Econ for Dev Oxford vs MA Columbia vs MSc Econ LSE

    Sponsored Ad:
    I've been accepted to all the three programs stated above. No funding.
    Needed a little bit of help to decide between these 3.

    I'm not sure if I want to specialise in development econ, but it is something I've really enjoyed studying and researching during my undergrad. Also have one internship in the same.

    Columbia is significantly more expensive, however there are perks of being able to work in the US after a degree. The job market in UK is significantly worse.

    Oxford and LSE offer progression to PhD, Columbia doesn't. Most probably, interested in a PhD after masters.

    Also, as far as funding is concerned, I'll be able to fund my masters, but will need funding at the PhD level.

    If anybody could provide an insight into any of these programs, it would be really helpful.

    It looks like LSE is the dominant option, especially if you want to pursue a PhD afterwards.
