    LSE EME or Oxford Econ MPhil

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi everyone.
    I am going to graduate in economics and finance at Bocconi University in July.
    I have received an offer from LSE EME and Oxford MPhil in Economics.
    My objective is to get to a top 20 PhD in U.S., or to continue to the Mres-PhD in Economics at LSE. My main areas of interest are political economy, macro and monetary economics. I have read that EME has much more connections with US economics departments. However, I am unsure whether or not I will be able to perform well in this master. As a matter of fact, during my bachelor I have covered advanced topics in econometrics, but I do not have an outstanding background in mathematics (I have covered mainly constrained and unconstrained optimization, linear algebra and integral mathematics). Moreover, EME is a 1-year programme, and I currently have only 2 good reference letters, so I would like to understand if it's possible to obtain one during EME's first semester.
    Relative to Oxford, I have been told that the Mphil in Economics , despite being a rigorous programme, does not require a student to have such a solid background in Maths. However, I have heard of few students who were able to be admitted to high ranked phd after the MPhil.
    It would be really helpful to hear from someone who has attended one of these programmes.

    Indeed I also have an offer for the Msc in Economic and Social Sciences, with a full tuition scholarship.
    However, my professors have told me that doing my master in another place would increase my possibilities to get to a good PhD programme.
    Nonetheless I am still considering remaining in Bocconi, especially because I would not pay tuition.
