    Hello everyone,

    I will be entering the MSc Econometrics and Mathematical Economics this october and I would like to have reactions about this program. How is the workload,how are the courses, is it more focused on statistics or economics, what do former students of this program actually do right now, etc.....?

    thanks!

    I don't know about this specific program, but generally, any economics program which has the words "econometrics" or "mathematics" in it is likely to focus much more on statistics than on economics. Even pure economics programs on a Masters level tend to focus on the math/statistics.

    According to LSE, both of the mandatory classes are quantitative.

    Sure, this program must be highly quantitative, but comming from France, I don't really know what to expect. Our teachers usualy tells us that we have quite a good level in math/stats....

    Also if some of you already did the program, I am quite interested in what they did after. I suppose that many students continue with a PhD, and at the moment, I really don't know if I would like to do that and work in research or be in the private sector (investment bank, consulting...)

    Hi Yves

    Just wanted to say hi, as I will be attending MSc EME myself in October. I am from Denmark and have a bachelor's degree from Copenhagen Business School. Most people with MSc EME I have talked to (just a few) have gone into banking - personally I wanna go into management consulting, but let's see. Have you got any replies from the accommodation office?

    Hi,

    its nice to "meet" before this october!

    for the presentation, I come from France, I am in an engeenering school specialized in statistics and I did a bachelor in economics at the same time in order to go to LSE.
    No, I have got nothing from accomodations, but I think we must wait till mid Jully.
    As for the work, I am interested in research or in strategic/economic consulting.

    Oh yes, Bibatch!

    How is he doing? Are you still in contact? I think you must, you seemed to be very good friends... Tell him I said hello!

    So, no one else doing MSc EME next year?
