so you would hire an MA in European Studies over an MA in East Asian Studies? Even though they both studied the political economies of each respective region? If you don't mind me asking, what line of work are you in?
Also, I think you're right. I would rather be in Europe and work in Europe, unless I could find a job that worked with European companies in America, Asia, or Latin America. But for the most part I am looking for European work. I find Dartmouth's atmosphere to be more charming and the school to be close knit, yet it's department is lacking. Columbia, while more intimidating, offer a lot more. If I just pull up my boot straps and work hard I bet that the payoff would be a lot better.
