  1. Hello, everyone! I am a business grad hoping to get into Economics. I've always been passionate about the subject and research but I was unable to pursue it because of financial problems. I'm hoping to find my way back to it now. Profile: Undergrad: Bachelor's in Business Administration (BBA), with a major in Finance and minor in Economics. Top 5 University in South Asian country but not significant ranking/well-known internationally Undergrad GPA: 3.79/4.00 GRE: 170Q, 166V, 6.0AWA Math Courses: Mathematics for Decisions - A Business Statistics - A Quantitative Analysis - A Econ Courses: Microeconomics - B+ Macroeconomics - B+ Econometrics - A Public Finance - B+ Other Courses: Most of my other courses are focused on finance, accounting, management, and marketing Research Experience: Negligible in terms of economics, was part-time RA for a professor for Human Resource Management. Work Experience: Joined PwC as an analyst last month. Work here involves primary research and market analysis as well as econometric modeling. A Levels: Economics (94%), Mathematics (98%), + 2 other subjects, also A* Yeah, definitely not the strongest of applications. I think my GPA and GRE scores offer some strength, but my coursework is not Econ-focused and I do not have research or teaching experience. Also, I can wrangle good LORs but they won't be from well-known economists :( Ideally, I want to get into an Econ Masters that supports students who have a non-Econ or non-quant background, such as the LSE 2-year or a Tilburg with a pre-Masters, or the Cambridge Advanced Diploma. Ultimately, I want to be able to do a PhD in a top 50 uni, so it's essential to get into at least a top 50/100 Master's where I can get research experience and a strong recommendation. Money, unfortunately, is still an issue which is why I am considering mainland Europe or Asia. I am willing to put in the work, even in a challenging program. I'm aiming to apply later this year, i.e. for the 2022 intake. Would appreciate any university suggestions and all recommendations!! It's taken some courage to post this so please be nice!!
  2. Hello everyone! I have received an admission offer from Barcelona GSE for the M.Sc in Macroeconomic policy and financial markets program. The offer is partially funded, so I will have to spend 10000 euros + living expenses (1 year). As an international student, I need to get a clear idea of how would this programme help me in the future, that is, whether an investment worth it or not? Background: I am a Mathematics graduate from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and have worked as a research associate in the economics area at Indian Institute of Management (IIM). Both of these institutes are the best in the country and have an excellent international reputation. Through my work until now, I have garnered an enormous amount of interest in financial markets; I aspire to either work for international development institutions as a financial economist or as a global investment manager in international corporations. The concerns I have in mind are as follows: 1. Non-EU alumni placement information: It is not possible to figure out how non-EU students have fared after graduating from the Barcelona GSE website and resources. As a non-Spanish speaker, I want to know how the opportunities to find a job within the EU after this program are? As another poster @iitiim has mentioned before: "At the end of it, if I have to return to my home country, then I don't think I will be able to get a job that offers any significant raise from what I am currently earning, which basically means I will get no return on the investment." 2. Location of the programme: The programme takes place in the Bellaterra campus, and all other BGSE master's programmes take place in the Ciutadella, how does this affect the living experience (as I see networking one of the essential components)? Thanks for taking the time to read and reply! Cheers, notmyname
  3. Hello. I've been doing some research about the admissions to MSc Economics programs in Europe. Since my BS is in engineering, I'm finding that there are very few programs that I'm qualified to apply to. I've emailed some programs asking about my situation, but I'm still not sure how best to proceed. Some programs (Mannheim) are consecutive masters so I'm definitely not qualified to apply. However, some programs (Erasmus School of Economics) stated that my qualifications cannot be assessed until I apply. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to spend 100 EUR applying to every school not knowing if I'm even qualified. I asked Erasmus how I should best prepare (what classes to take, which pre-master/diploma programs, etc.) and receive very vague answers. Is there anyone who has the experience applying to European MSc programs with an American bachelor's degree in an unrelated field? Should I take classes at my local university or go for a formal, reputable program like graduate diploma from Birkbeck, University of London? I want to maximize my chances at getting into the best possible programs so I don't want to do a school-specific pre-master program (Erasmus offered one, but judging from its curriculum, I'm not confident I would be able to apply to other prestigious programs.) Any advice is greatly appreciated.
  4. Hello, I'm looking for advice about applying to schools in Europe for a MSc in economics. I have a BS engineering degree from a flagship US university and only took introductory courses in economics in undergrad. For math classes, I've taken the calculus series, differential equations, and numerical methods and linear algebra (combined in 1 class). From my research, it seems like a lot of the reputable schools require a BS in economics or that you've taken a lot of econ classes. Some universities states that they welcome students with extensive quantitative background as long as they have "sufficient" economics background. I've emailed some of those school and have only received vague answers along the line of "we're not able to assess your qualification unless you apply and pay the application fee." Unfortunately, I can't afford to spend 100 euros at every school I'm interested in. My question is: 1. What is generally considered a sufficient background in economics for European schools. I know that every school is going to have different requirements, but I'm just looking for some ideas of specific classes (intermediate micro, macro, econometrics?) 2. If I'm not qualified to apply this cycle, should I take classes at a local university (pros: cheap, no rent; con: not a lot of prestige) or do a formal graduate diploma/pre-master program such as Birkbeck's (pros: prestige, con: expensive tuition & cost of living in London)? Also, does anyone have any experience with University of London's online graduate diploma? They claimed its curriculum is designed by LSE, but I haven't found much information about it. Any advice from someone with experience in this situation is greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi all, First time poster, long time reader here. I know a lot of people on here are mostly interested in doing pure econ but that there is a growing number who are looking into the ag/resource/applied side of things. I am currently applying to grad school for fall 2017, and I was hoping to get some opinions on the types of schools I should be looking at (for Ag Econ). Any advice, both current ag econ and econ grad students, as well as from people who are applying for the 2017-2018 school year is greatly appreciated. PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Ag econ major and math/stat minor; large US state school with a mid-tier ag econ and econ program Undergrad GPA:4.00 GRE:166Q, 164V, 4.5AW Math Courses:Calc (1-3), diff eq, linear (non proof), intro math stats, basic and intermediate stats; currently in probability theory and will take inference theory and 'elementary' real analysis in the Spring (yeah, after admissions) Econ Courses: Intros, intermediates, international trade, metrics, and lots of ag econ (food economics, ag trade, commodity marketing, price analysis, policy analysis, etc.) Letters of Recommendation: Associate professors; one I TA'd for (intermediate micro), one I did research with (see below) , and one who oversaw my "capstone" project (basically a less extensive senior thesis that I finished last semester over Brazilian ag trade). Research Experience:I helped integrate state level data into a commodity simulation "game" that will be used by our extension program to help teach producers in the state how to better market their crop.Nothing major. My concerns: Where to begin? Basically, I have taken a lot of math compared to other ag econ students in my department, but I know I am lacking compared the vast majority of applicants out there; but all the profs I talked to about grad school (a whopping six or seven) have been very encouraging and seem to think I have what it takes However, I won't be taking my school's intro analysis class (read as intro to proofs under an analysis context; the textbook is Lay) until after I apply. I'm basically just hoping to use it to better my proof writing and reading and get familiar with the notation. I am trying to put together a list of realistic schools I have a shot at getting (and succeeding) in. I realize that in most ag econ PhD programs, I will have to take the econ departments micro and metrics prelims. My research interests are in commodity marketing (as a risk management tool), price and demand forecasting in commodity markets, consumer behavior, and international trade. Applying to (all ag econ): Texas Tech MS, Oklahoma State MS, Nebraska MS, Iowa State MS, Purdue MS (ha), Auburn MS, and University of Florida Resource Econ MS. The reason I am doing the masters route is (1) I'm probably not ready for an ag econ Phd yet, and (2) all ag econ programs that I have seen require an MS before you can apply to their PhD program. Please give me any advice on schools that might be a good fit and what I should be doing to be a better application. Don't hold any punches.
  6. hi I am a grad student and I wish to apply to some US universities for a Phd in economics and would love some help with that. I am from India and have done an undergraduate degree in economics and a postgraduate diploma in economics from Cambridge. any suggestions would be quite helpful
  7. Some MS or MR programs in economics have prerequisites on intermediate micro and macro, and self-learning will not subsititute for formal courses. Unfortunately, my undergraduate program doesn't provide courses on intermediate level (We just learn it for a semester, and final level we reach is between introductory and intermediate, as far as I see). I have still 5-6 months from the deadline. So I would be very appreciated if someone can give me some suggestions on how to make it up (I have learn all of that myself). Thanks in advance.
  8. An Indian undergraduate student currently studying in one of the best colleges in India....probably relatively unknown outside India. I have and undergrad GPA of around 3.3-3.4. I'd like to know if I've got any chance of getting accepted in any of the masters programmes in Europe....TSE, GSE,PSE, LSE, Warwick. What about the M.Sc. in Development Economics at Oxford?
  9. Hello, this forum has been really helpful for gaining insights on colleges. I want to work after my Master in Economics and not directly pursue a Phd (maybe in the future, but not immediately) I mainly want to work in the International Development sector and with organizations like World Bank, IMF, UNDP etc. I am completing my undergrad in Economics from a very prestigious Indian University. Though my marks are average, my LORs are pretty good. I've applied to the following schools and which one do you think will give me a better opening in to the job sector I want to go to: UK: 1. LSE 2. UCL 3. Oxford 4. Cambridge 5. SOAS 6. St. Andrews USA: 1. Boston University 2. Duke 3. John Hopkins (I dont have much scope to get into US because Indian Undergrads are for 3 years relative to their requirement of 4 year undergrads and they usually prefer work experience before taking on people even for masters. Plus i dont think my GRE is good enough for Hopkins or Duke. But BU I am hoping for. ) other schools: Toulouse, Hong Kong University and Graduate Institute in Geneva. My main area of interest in Economics is: International economics and development.
  10. Hello, I am a double major (statistics/econ) undergrad. I need 3 referees for my oxford application: one of my economics teacher (macroecon) agreed to write me one, i've been to some of his classes, another one who hasn't teach me but works in the college also agreed, he's known and has publications. I am hesitating between my microeconomics teacher and my stat teacher. I had good grades in both. What would you think the admission jury in oxford would like better? I had a 780 in quant in the gre, so maybe i need more econs teacher recommending me since i dont have a pure econ bsc? or is it better to choose 1/3 referees to be a more quantitative one? thank you all :)
  11. Type of Undergrad: Econ major, math minor Undergrad GPA: 3.1 overall, bad first 3 semesters GRE:haven't taken it yet Math Courses: Calc(B,B+), Linear Algebra(B+ expected), Diff Eqs(A- expected), going to take Calc 3, Proofs, and Mathematical Modeling by the end of the school year Econ Courses: Int Micro(A), Int Macro(B+), Theory of Money(A), Environmental(A), Natural Resource(A expected), Forecasting(A-), International(A expected), Gov. regs(A-), Econometrics(B+), Economics of Energy(B+) Letters of Recommendation: Two very good(U of Wyoming) both unknown, One good(U of Col-Boulder) some what known. Research Experience: one year RA on water issues in developing countries Teaching Experience: TA for two teachers, tutored Research Interests: Environmental, econometrics, micro, international, and more Schools Applying To: Masters: UCSB, USF international, U Minnesota applied, Cal poly, CSU long beach, U of Wyoming, Rutgers, Tufts?, BU? Am I looking in the right places? What if i took another year to beef up my math? Let's assume I get B+ to A- range in Calc 3, Proofs, Mathematical Modeling, Advanced Calc(real analysis) 1 and 2, Stats 1 and 2, Math stats, Linear algebra 2, Topology, and maybe ODE or PDE. What would that do to my Phd chances?
