Hello all, I am an American applying to the Cambridge Econ program along with LSE Math/Econ and am wondering how Cambridge stands in terms of mathematics in its Econ program. I have read the course papers and am slightly concerned. In the US many Econ students take higher-level proof-based math classes (Harvard's math 25/55) and then have their intermediate classes near the graduate level, such as Ec 1011a at Harvard with Ed Glaeser, which many students take when they're second years, but some take in their first year. How close is a school like Cambridge to offering an undergrad course like this at this level, and would Cambridge offer enough of a foundation to go on and pursue a PhD at a place such as Harvard with a first class degree? The main allure of Cambridge is the better quality of teaching for those of you wondering, as in the US some professors don't even have set office hours.
Thanks in advance.
