Dear Urchins, I would like to pick your brains for some advice regarding which masters to enroll in - I've been accepted to Barcelona GSE's MSc, Tilburg's MPhil and Maastricht's MSc. I might continue to do a PhD (not 100% sure as of now, since I might find that I'm not suited for econ academia (my Bachelor's degree was in engineering)), and for that reason, as well as other reasons, I'm a bit more inclined towards BGSE because of it's better placements. The thing is, my interest lies in the field of decision/game theory and behavioural econ, but it seems like BGSE's focus is on macro? On the other hand, Maastricht and Tilburg are both pretty strong in the fields of my interest. Would BSGE's focus on macro be important in the master's course? Would it still be possible to get good training in game theory/behavioral econ + possibly land an RA gig in these fields after the course at BGSE? Thanks in advance for your replies!
Hi everyone - I come to you begging for your advise. I am an American college graduate and will be attending one of these schools next year. I've read conflicting information about which would be best, so I was hoping anyone with insight would be kind enough to lend his/her advise. I just ask that you please keep the advise focused on the quality of the school and degree, not cost or other factors, etc. I am unsure as whether I would like to eventually pursue a PhD, or enter back into the private sector, but I would like a program that (if possible) would help me keep both of these options open. I'm specifically interested in Behavioural Economics, especially using applications of the Big Five Personality Theory and Myers-Briggs. Here are the schools I am considering: Nottingham University - MSc in Behavioural Economics (applied) Erasmus University Rotterdam - MSc in Behavioural Economics (accepted) University of Amsterdam - MSc in Behavioural Economics and Game Theory (almost done with application) Maastricht University - MSc in Human Decision Science (applied) Thank you in advance for your advise, it is truly much appreciated.
