    Depends how you define 'best', as in overall? I cannot answer that question but just through world reputation I'd say these are some of the best if not the best : Harvard, Cambridge, MIT, Stanford, LSE
    Thanks. Maybe I should have been clearer. By best I mean the most prestigious and highly regarded for job prospects.

    Tbh all the universities listed above are highly prestigious and I highly doubt graduates from any of these universities are struggling to find employment . However just through personal preference I'd say Harvard is the most prestigious and also because of its impressive list of famous alumni

    Ok so what does everyone believe are the best universities for economics in the world? Regardless of world league tables do you reckon Harvard/Princeton/Stanford are better than the likes of Cambridge/LSE/ Oxford????

    For Harvard, Princeton, Yale and Stanford I have no idea how tough the maths is as I haven't researched the economics courses for those universities, however I'd assume they are on the same level as Cambridge & LSE. I know the maths involved at LSE can be challenging as my sister is attending there

    I'm sure Churchill would appreciate you not sharing their admissions procedure. It is unfair on students who, like yourself, have done the interview and advantages students yet to interview.
    I appreciate that. Thank you for sharing your view. You are in fact quite right. I was just trying to share my experiences and potentially put other students at ease, applying to Cambridge can be nerve racking and the interview process is particularly so. Thats part of the reason as to why this site exists. I can assure you though, that the playing field is indeed still level - there is no perfect formula for a Cambridge interview, it is in their nature to be difficult and they require students to think outside the box. Most of what I've said is available to all students online anyway.
