Is MSc in Finance and Economics program at LSE practical? [#permalink] New post 16 Apr 2011, 06:04
Hi all,
I get accepted from MSc Finance and Economics at LSE. I plan to work as analyst after I get master's degree. My goal is to become a fund (or risk) manager in the future.

Yesterday, I talked to a student who took the LSE's program before. He does not like the program at all. He said that the program was not practical at all. The program was good for students who want to continue their Ph.D in Finance (or Economics).

Do you guys have any idea about LSE's MSc in Finance and Economics program? Can anybody tell me about your experience there? How's the courses?

Hi

I graduated from LSE with a MSc Economics degree last year. The program's at LSE are highly theoretical, and as rightly pointed out by the student there, aimed for a career in academia. I would strongly suggest that you take an informed decision regarding LSE's offer.

Congratulations for getting into LSE!

cheers!
