Hey guys! Please help me! I have been driving myself crazy trying to decide between these two programs. I managed to get accepted into the PhD program in Agricultural and Resource Economics at Maryland. It is a fully funded offer. I also got into Yale IDE and MESc (research track) with a $30K/year scholarship from the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. I am completely torn between the two programs. One on hand you have Maryland AREC which is a great program for environmental and development economics--my areas of interest. I also visited the school and absolutely loved it. The professors were all fantastic as were the graduate students. On the other hand, there is the joint degree program at Yale. Yale is great for environmental economics and the MESc program is flexible so I can make it a hybrid policy and science degree even though it is an MESc. My assigned research adviser is pretty awesome as well. Also, I have the chance to learn more about development economics through the IDE program. I am completely torn between these two programs. Any help or additional information would be extremely appreciated. I have to make a decision soon and I've never been more lost. Thanks guys! :)
Hi, I recently came to know about Yale's Masters programme in International Devpt and Economics. Wanted to know how good is it, if I want it to be my terminal degree and not currently pursuiing any PhD dreams. Some background info abt me: I'm an economics undergrad from an asian developing country. Have been working in energy and climate change consulting domain for two years - wish to go to back to school now. However, with my limited maths and not so stellar grades, a PhD Econ looks out of reach. Therefore I have been looking for terminal masters degress in econ which can provide me a job in pvt sector/think tank after i graduate. Any info on this course - in terms of it market value - would be highly appreciated. Thanks! PS: i searched for a forum on this course, but was not able to find one. Hence, a new thread
