Suppose you've just graduated in Computer Science, and for *some reason*, became interested in Economics. Where would you want to study, and what would it take to get there?

Thanks.

Main Advice: Do not get advice from this forum.

I could give more advice, but it is better to be clear than complete.

Go to econjobrumors.org expect abuse , trolling, and information there. Most importantly where previous graduates of PhD programs got jobs.

I also studied computer science (in Europe) and eventually became interested in economics and financial markets. I ended up combining both and writing my graduation thesis at my schools Econ Dept about different automatic trading models.

I would advice you to figure out what part of economics it is that interests you the most, and whether you want to combine it with anything you did before or simply start all over.
If I were you, I'd also start reading up on some relevant papers in the field and look for the good stuff in their bibliography. Don't be too shy to mail the authors and ask for possible follow-up on/advanced related material advice - most of them are friendly enough to share that kind of knowledge with you (especially if you praise their work and promise quotations in any future publication of yours Grin). Once you did that, you should have acquired a broad horizon about the research hubs in your particular field of interest and should then be able to choose your school accordingly.

Good luck!

especially in Europe, it really depends what aspect of Economics you want to study.  I thought about applying to a few places for Public Economics...
Are you looking to do a PhD or masters?  An MA in some form of international or business economics would make sense at a European school if you're American - if you want something specific to American Economics it doesn't make sense to get a masters in Europe.  If you're looking to do research there are some great research schools in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, UK, etc again depending on your area of interest.  If you're looking to study general Microeconomic Theory or Econometrics or something, you can really do that just about anywhere.

I hear a lot of good things about George Mason University in Virginia.  I really doubt that you can find a quality economics education in Europe.  Austria isn't at all interested in Austrian Economics.

Want to buy a 2004 Ford Taurus with bitcoin?  I live in Maryland.  Send me a private message if interested.

Yeah, I was surprised to learn that about Austria, hah

But there are some good schools.  I was looking a few top schools in some areas I was interested at some places in the Netherlands.  Came close to applying to a masters program at University of Tilburg
