Hi All -
I'm an American and I got into the MSc Economics program at SSE and I need help deciding whether to go. My main concern is employment after completion of the program. I got my MSc in Accounting & Finance from the LSE in 2012 and the UK gov had just cancelled the Tier 1 Post Study Work Permit - I didn't get a single interview. And LSE didn't provide me with any support when I got back to the US. They only allowed me 1 year access to their job board (useless as most jobs were in Europe) and then I was cut off.
I don't want to be in this same position again so I'm hoping to reach out to Americans in Sweden who've had success securing employment and living there (or in Europe) after their studies.
I currently work in(shipping - crude oil/product tankers) but I haven't learnt much about macro stuff as I wanted from this job. I was hoping I would become more knowledgeable in analyzing commodity trade flows but I'm pretty much just a modelling monkey computing NAVs all day.
So, although I would enjoy the subject matter of the MSc Econ program, not being able to find a job afterwards would be worse than working in my current job.
Any advice re SSE would be helpful, though, I've already read through the previous threads stating how good the placement for SSE is.
