renyouyang Posted May 6, 2009 Share Posted May 6, 2009 I've been accepted into M.Phil in Finance in Tilburg(netherlands) and Msc in Financial Economics in BI(norway). Since there is not much detailed information about either university and it's sort of hard to compare two universities from different countries, I would like to post their courses and compulsory and recommended reading here, hope someone help me compare them to see which program is more career-oriented and which could be more difficult to study? I don't have very solid academic background and am not determined to be a phd. Thanks for all your help.
