Need help choosing MA/MSc
Useless posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHello everyone. I faced a dilemma, so I am in need of advice. I am from a Commonwealth country, taking my penultimate semester at BA in Economics. Grades: Micro B+, Macro B-, others A and A+ I am aiming to get admitted to a middle-ranked PhD in Econ in the US. But considering that I don't have such a strong background (just have several "papers" with elementary econometrics on SSRN, one conference paper on machine learning topic and 2 papers which currently are under review, but it will take an eternity for the papers to be published), I've decided to apply for MA/MSc. Hence, I do have two options: 1) MSc in mathematical modeling or MSc in Statistics in developing countries (Russia, Turkey, maybe Eastern Europe) or 2) MA/MSc in Economics or Quantitative Economics or Econometrics in Germany (can't afford other Western Europe countries :)) So, which one is more appropriate for PhD in Econ? In case of 2, Economics or Quantitative Economics? Thanks for reading :)
