MSc Economics: UC3M vs Barcelona GSE
Vinci posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHello, I have been admitted to the MSc Economics at Barcelona GSE and UC3M. Both are one-year long courses. Issue: I got no funding. And Barcelona costs twice as much as UC3M. I know Barcelona GSE is generally seen "better" than UC3M, hence why I want to know how much better Barcelona is than UC3M and whether such prestige gap is worth paying twice as much. Interests: Econometrics and Macroeconomics. Which course would you opt for if you were in my position? Which is a better option if I decide to apply for a PhD in the future? Which is one is better for the private sector? Thanks in advance
Frankfurt Ph.D. vs. Barcelona GSE MSc
RosaZeng posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHi all, I got admission from Frankfurt as Ph.D. track and MSc in Economics in Barcelona GSE. In general, my final goal is to pursue a Ph.D. in North America, particularly the US. I wouldn't complete the Ph.D. in Frankfurt. Instead, I tend to study for two years and have a thesis and get a master degree. This is the advantage. The study in Frankfurt helps you have more time to prepare for the application for Ph.D. But I'm not sure if this is common for people in Frankfurt to apply for outside Ph.D. I'm not sure the placement record for Frankfurt. Plus, they are not that matched with my research interests, to say, economic history, development, and applied micro. The advantage for Barcelona GSE is clear. But the disadvantage is also clear that it only has one year. I must find a place to stay after the year. I plan to apply for RAship or MPhil or MRes with funding. How would you say about the plan? Please give me some advice. I will be very grateful. Rosa
Msc Economics at Warwick VS. ITFD at Barcelona GSE
peterw posted a topic in Graduate AdmissionsHi! I've been admitted in these programs and have to decide which to study during the next course. As I've got a scholarship from my government (developing country), all the costs are covered and the price doesn't have to be taken into account to make the final decision. The fact is that I'd like to pursue a career into an international organization related to Development Economics and ITFD seems to be more oriented to this field and has placed lots of students in relevant institutions. On the other side, Warwick is a good faculty but I'm not sure about its recognition in this field and how it supports its students to get a position there. What do you think is the best choice? Which one will allow me to reach my aim more easily?? Thank you so much. It's very important for me. Hope your opinions.
