Interested in going for an economics PhD? Resources on how to apply (and whether you should):

Where should you get your master's degree in economics?

In general, it is important to distinguish between a research-oriented and a policy-oriented master in economics. A research-oriented master can be useful if you want to obtain a doctorate in economics and/ or if your future job requires strong quantitative skills. You can identify research-oriented masters based on their module manual (PhD- / Advanced- / Quantitative- / Research-Track). For instance, the University of Mannheim offers a fast track option (Economic Research Track) for acquiring a doctorate. You should consider a policy-oriented master if you want to start to work directly after completing your master’s program. Furthermore, take into account that the application process starts very early in some countries such as the United Kingdom, especially if you want to apply for a scholarship as well.
