Hi everyone, I am so at loss at this moment. Need your help! I am now studying Financial Engineering at National University of Singapore (NUS) at Master level and wants to pursue a PhD program in Europe(like Frankfurt or Zurich). My interest is in banking and monetary econ. And I don't know what to choose between 【1】GAP one year( doing some voluntary research with professor at NUS ) and 【2】 going for the advanced master at KU.Leuven, which is a one-year program Sincerely want to know your opinion! Also, I am a little bit confused: I see KU.Leuven ranks high on kinds of ECON school lists, but what is the strong area of KU.Leuven? Is it Econometrics? Thanks very much!
Hi All, I am planning to apply for Fall 2015 PhD Eco; inclined towards programs in the US. I don't think I have credentials for top 30, and guess they are the better ones for macroeconomics related specialisation. It would be extremely helpful if you can advise, from your experience/knowledge, names good for macro/public eco related specialisation in rank 25-60 maybe. Appreciate each and every response. Lastly, my GRE quant score is 161, I don't have time to retake as I am currently working for an I-bank and spend considerable amount of time in office. :upset: So, in case someone feels 161 is a completely unacceptable score for a particular univ., please mention that name separately. Thanks!

Hi, I would like to know which are the good PhD programs in Monetary Macro in Europe apart from LSE, Oxford and Cambridge. How about Tilburg? Also, how about funding for international students and the placements. I am an Indian applicant targeting 2014 admissions. Thanks.
