Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is hard, classes are difficult and students are pushed to the limit. But you learn a lot and you become a real economist.

It's a small program, so everyone is well connected. Faculty and staff are nice and easily accessible. The area is also very nice to live.

The pros are that the faculty members are very supportive of their students and the program in general has a friendly environment. The cons are that as any other graduate programs, the TA load is high.

No efforts made and resources spent on providing students with information on non-academic career options. No support for acquisition of research data which is not publically available.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: A very good faculty for applied microeconomics. Excellent peer group and study culture. Cons: The temperatures can be very low during the winters. Social life is not particularly great. However, close enough to Boston for socializing purposes.

The courses are challenging and the workload is pretty heavy, and that's how the Econ department at Brown prepares her grad students for their future career. The faculty and staff are very friendly and approachable. They provide with the students with all kinds of information they need.
