yes I am applying too... want to share profiles?
i got the offer from NTU. But dunno should i proceed or not....

There are too many graduates in the market now. Graduating with a masters doesnt necessarily promise you a job as an analyst etc.

The first set of modules will be:

1) Applied Econometrics
2) Advanced Microeconomics Theory

But one thing is for certain - can give tuition at the undergrad level in the future with $80 min for tuition fees (1-on-1)!!!

depends on what kind of job you are looking for and how senior you were in your previous job.

Financial Institutes economic research, yes. I think very relevant and useful. In fact one of the must have.

so i guess you are going for the Msc FT...



good luck~

I a very keen on being an economic research. But after applying for many times, I was not called for any interviews.

I believe that there are many more people more competent than I am in terms of relevant experience and qualification. Even if i have the Master, it cant gaurantee me a job as a researcher or an analyst.

Hence I have decided to forgo it. I am finding a temp job now.

i am a bank trader and finance-trained.

the economists that i spoke to, from IBs are mostly from ivy league or top universities in UK...but i do see some local bank or 2nd tier banks hire local grads for research analyst roles.

you can also try asset management research analyst role...


what's your 1st degree in? and where from?

how long it takes to reply you an offer?

usually, the faster it is, the fewer number of applicants there are...

I accepted the offer after much consideration as I feel that a degree is now very common and hence taking a masters increase your chance of finding a job . Hence taking this masters would open up more doors as public sector will likely consider someone with local uni as compared foreign uni . Thus , I accepted the offer .
