Hi I am an American who just got accepted into LSE Finance and PE, Oxford MFE, and LBS MiM. (Still waiting to hear back from Cambridge MPhil Mgmt).
LSE - heard it's like a factory. but obv good school
Oxford - financial economics sounds not so serious??? Oxford has a good rep worldwide but not sure if it will help me get a job in the US.
LBS - great MBA, but keep having it confused with LSE in the states.
Cambridge - eh.
I have zero finance internships, studied the arts, but graduated from an Ivy League School. Which program will help me get a job in the US??
No, I didn't apply to MIT Masters of Finance bc I heard bad things and was not impressed when they came to my school to give a presentation. Also mad $$$.
Here's the bad news / question: Why did you apply to UK programs if you want to work in the US??
If you wanted to work in the UK, I think the LBS degree would likely be best, followed closely with LSE.
For working back in the US it is now an uphill battle. A master's degree doesnt put you into a better category than someone straight out of undergrad. In the business world in the US, for a master's.. I would potentially lean towards LSE or Oxford. Cambridge Mphil is for research, as in, those wanting to go down the path to a Phd.
Either way you will be doing your own recruiting, which is pretty hard. Oxford may actually gain an edge here, but at this point I am just guessing.
That 700.. I can taste it
