While both programs are excellent, we're comparing apples to oranges here. I don't know that much about management programs, but the MSc Finance degree is perhaps the best program LSE has to offer.

An LBS or LSE degree promises a successful career in IB, so either is a great choice. But your choice also depends on what are your specific goals. A management-oriented future would be better served with the LBS degree, while a career with more market, financial, or economic analysis would fit better with LSE. It also depends on your personality. A person blessed with a quantitive mind will probably feel more comfortable in a financial environment.

For me, though, I would choose LSE. Finance is a powerful and versatile tool.

thanks! for LBS's program seems like a better brand, but my concern is that the topics are too broad, while the LSE's Ms in Finance is essential and specific info, but less name recognition..

It also depends on where you would like to work. In America, an MBA is more common than a MSc for IB compared to Europe. And it doesn't matter too much whether the diploma has the letters "LBS" or "LSE" on it - especially for London. Both schools enjoy superb and probably equal reputations.
