Post Grad in Economics

I have been getting a lot of queries regarding the admission procedures in DSE, JNU and IGIDR so i thought of putting all the details i know into this post.
Starting with IGIDR, The last date for sending the completed application forms is March 17. There will be a written test comprising verbal ability and mathematics. Candidates should have taken Math during 12th standard. Those who pass the test are called for an interview. Only about 30 seats are available. It is an institution of repute concentrating on environmental economics.
DSE-It is a part of the Delhi University and there is a common entrance. We have to register with the university and with the colleges separately. The admission notice will come during the first week of may. DSE is the best place to be. Selection is made on the performance in the written test. It consists of microeconomics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics and statistics.
JNU-It offers two masters in economics, one the usual masters(which i prefer) and one with specialization in world economy. The last dates for sending the applications by post is march 17. The previous question papers can also be got from the university.
Thats all for now.
All the best!

Well Leena, I am sorry as i have no idea as to how the selection process for M Phil is. Where did you do your MBA. I seldom see people choosing Eco after MBA.

did my MBA from IIM. have always been interested in Eco (studied at college-CBS and in MBA) so when i decided to do a Ph.D, eco was an obvious choice. am only interested in international economics, which i have studied in great detail but unfortunately for the entrance exams, i have to do the whole Eco syllabus. so i have no clue which books to refer to. can u please reply at kingerleena@gmail.com. thanx a ton!

Well,
To start with you can get a grip on economic history by going through Adam Smith's Wealth of nations.
You can read Economic and political weekly.
Tell me if you have special interest in any branch of economics like fiscal or monetary or environmental.

Hi. I did my Undergraduate degree in Economics from Presidency College, Kolkata. I am currently doing my masters at University College London. I wish to apply for a PhD next year after taking a gap year. Would you know about options that I could pursue in this gap year, say be a research assistant or something, application of economics oriented.

Very good post, I was really searching for this topic, as I wanted this topic to understand completely and it is also very rare in internet, that is why it was very difficult to understand.
Thank you for sharing this.
