    hi there,
    i am currently studying for a BSC in economics at UoL and I'm wondering which course to take in second and third year.
    I still don't know if i'll pursue a msc in economics or more econometrics/statistics oriented. I don't want to reduce my chances by choosing the wrong courses.
    I'm worried that some courses may not be important for postgraduate studies.
    Among the options I have here the ones I'm the most interested in :
    - EC3044 Economics of development
    - EC3115 Monetary economics
    - EC3120 Mathematical economics
    - MT3095 Further mathematics for economists

    Should I take the more mathematical ones? In the list below do you see any course which might be more useful.

    Complete list :
    EC2096 Economic history in the 20th century
    EC3015 Economics of labour (MN3028 or EC2066)
    EC3016 International economics (EC2065) + (EC2066 or MN3028)
    EC3022 Public economics (MN3028 or EC2066)
    EC3044 Economics of development (EC2065) + (EC2066 or MN3028)
    EC3099 Industrial economics (MN3028 or EC2066)
    EC3120 Mathematical economics (EC2066 + MT105A + MT105B) or (EC2066 + MT1174)
    FN3092 Corporate finance (EC1002) + (MT105A or MT105B or MT1174)
    GY2164 Economic geography
    IR3026 International political economy (EC1002 or IR1011)
    MN3028 Managerial economics (EC1002) + (MT105A or MT1174)
    MT3095 Further mathematics for economists (MT105A + MT105B) or (MT1174)

    Hi, I am doing uol too. You meant the lse external degree right? If you want to leave all options open, do further maths for economists and mathematical econs. I have just done year 1 and I am taking them in year 2 and 3 respectively. I am from BSc Economics & Finance and I aim to do MSc Applicable maths at LSE.
