  1. Re: Importance of Research Interests for Admissions

    I frankly dont remember, it was over 5 years ago that I applied. It was a specific research project with Prof. Wakker, that's all I recall. In his email he only mentioned te "department", so nothing...

    Re: Frankfurt vs. Alicante

    The MSQ in econ from frankfurt is tough though, fair warning.

    But rockystone2018 is not wrong that for Macro work, you'll probably be very well served by Frankfurt. Although the current main DSGE...

    Hi there,

    Well, actually there is a Professor in Darmstadt (one of the three partner universities in the GSEFM, the structured programme in Frankfurt) who speciliases in Economic History, his name...
  4. Re: Any input on the PhD experience in Europe?

    Well the thing with Europe is that obviously you have a lot of different countries meaning answers to your questions will differ country to country. I mean the question about funding may even change...
  5. Re: PhD Application: looking for a school with strong Macro department

    Just a quick note on Frankfurt, getting funding is more of a pain than anything, lots and lots of people from my cohort (2014) are still looking for jobs, though a fair few have found jobs as TA/RA,...
  6. Re: Profile Evaluation Urgent: 2017 Behavioral Economics

    Well, this is tough to say, I mean Oxford and LSE are much more traditional, from a UK perspective, in that they'll really need to see a 'Distinction' to consider admission. Like I said though,...

    Re: Question about German masters

    I honestly dont anyone who has done that, most people just end up staying in for the PhD at the same university :/

    And those programmes that have close ties between their MSc and PhD, like...
  8. Re: Profile Evaluation Urgent: 2017 Behavioral Economics

    Unless you get a distinction from Glasgow, which is a good uni, but still not in the top tiers, you'll struggle a lot to get into Oxford or the LSE (and by struggle, I mean you won't).

    Re: PhD in Behavioural Economics

    Zurich is also very selective, so unless you get a glowing LOR from Gächter or Starmer, or potentially Cubitt or Renner, I dont think so. It wont cost you much to apply though so why not, but I...

    Re: MSc before PhD: UK vs Bologna

    I honestly never met anyone from Essex, or who would have chosen Essex over any of the universities you mentioned. Queen Mary is quite good definitely, and Bristol would be up there with Manchester,...

    Re: MSc before PhD: UK vs Bologna

    Well, for Nottingham if you're looking at placements from MSc students into PhD programmes, the truth is that few choose to do that (in my year [2013] we were about 6-8 I think, out of 137), and most...

    Re: Bristol or Warwick Economics

    For industry placements, Warwick is also very good, it's one of those names every potential employer will know in the UK, however this doesnt mean that Bristol isnt, it is also quite a good uni, but...
  14. Re: Math req's for European Masters vs. US PhD

    Oh ok my bad, only speed-read through your prep, my bad! so you got full calc + lin algebra then? What does full calc. entail exactly? Im asking because most of the time in Europe econ programmes do...
  15. Re: Math req's for European Masters vs. US PhD
