Humboldt MEMS vs Frankfurt GSEFM Economics (english)
I'm writing in English. I'm sorry but i think it's better than translating it with google.
I'm an international student majored in math and i hoped to study economics in germany / german univerisities.
For I have no inside information of german universities and i've been only in Humboldt university before (during exchange program), all I could do was to look into the newspapers' uni rankings and to select several schools sounding famous. Of course I checked their webpages to get more impressions.
I applied for Bonn, Mannheim, Humboldt Berlin, Frankfurt, etc, and I got admission from HU MEMS master in economics and management and Frankfurt GSEFM phd+mqe in economics. Still waiting for other unis though.
Since I have no general info about german schools other than the international rankings, I applied for as many schools as I managed to and now I'm having hard times deciding which school to go. If you are studying inside one of these programs or you're doing master or doctoral in economics at other german schools, so that you could give me some advices, it will help me a lot.
Looking into the school's webpage and threads in many forums, I got an impression that Frankfurt has strength in Macro and Finance and also that the job placement has been successful in macro and finance areas. (Also, i wrote to one of faculty members there and she replied that it is indeed, but she didn't say about micro.) However, since my major interests are in Micro theory, applied micro, game thy and so on, and I also want to study other social sciences and humanities together with economics hoping that would be interesting academic connection, I wonder if the school fits well with my characteristics.
How is it to study micro in Frankfurt? Is it also strong in micro or would it be a bad idea to study micro there?
About humboldt university, i got accepted into MEMS master program. It is master's program in economics and management sci, but i think i can focus on economics rather than managementby my choice. I tried to get some more information about the school, program, but was not successful. There is no information like job placement (though it's not really decisive for me, i think it can be some criterion to compare schools.) on the webpage and also I could not find threads giving me meaningful information. How is micro at humboldt university in general? It's really hard to get an idea what the program is like. There is hardly a thread about it and also hard to know the placement. I heard that HU is really good in Philo, humanities, maybe in social sci's, so if the program is good in micro, maybe it is better for me. How is it to study Economics in Berlin in general? The city's touristic attractions don't matter with me. BDPEMS, DIW, are they good in general?(in micro?)
I also know that people successfully graduated HU or FU masters go to BDPEMS to pursue doctoral. How is the institute? Is it also really good as GSEFM frankfurt? How is it to study micro in Berlin in general?
So many questions. Thank you for reading this and I hope you guys could help me a bit.
I'm sorry again that my english thread is invading german forum, but i hope you guys studyin in germany could give me some valuable advices and I'll start learning german soon.
Thank you!! ?
