Hello mates!

Has anyone gone through the admission process for PhD in Economics? I'm currently looking for the best programs to be enrolled in 2016. Considered a lot of options, but still hard to make a decision. Can you recommend one of these universities?

  • National University of Singapore: This is one of the schools offering top economics programs around the world. Getting PhD in the school helps you to be more knowledgeable. For admission requirements, you should completed master’s degree, English language proficiency for non-native speakers and has strong honors degree.
  • University of Milan: The PhD program can be completed in three years providing general education in economics. It is taught in English language and for PhD economics admissions, students should have strong motivation and knowledge.

You want to choose a program based on your chosen field or speciality rather than name. For example, if you are into Macro, Minnesota is the school to be at. I'm not sure about rankings for international schools though.
