I've been admitted in the msc finance program at washu and imperial. I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. Would really appreciate any advice on how the compare in terms of job prospects (i am an international student), program recognition. In short, which is a better program.

Hi, menaqvi.
Have a look at FT's stats.
I'd personally choose Imperial for several reasons (especially if I weren't a charter-holder):
1) Its MSc in Finance is a CFA Partner Programme
2) Imperial is in the top 5 in the UK (and probably Europe)
3) It is in London - a place to be if you are focusing on a financial career, networking, exploring PhD opportunities, etc...

I am probably biased as 3 of the 5 places I'll be applying to are in London =)
And the other two are not that far away too =)

yea, Imperial is definitely one of the best in the UK, and supposedly the school itself is known as one of the world's more prestigious universities.

Though, if you applied to WUSTL and Imperial, you may want to start thinking about what you truly want location wise out of your education. I only applied to international schools in UK and Europe because I knew I want to work somewhere in Europe. Europe and America are vastly different options... Even the UK v other European schools is very different.

I agree Imperial is a world renowned university, but from what i gathered, its business school is not the best in london. It comes after LSE, LBS, Warwick. At the same time the PSW option has been cancelled in the UK for international students and employment for internationals will most likely become tougher.
WUSTL is not the best program in US either, but they have a smaller class size and have had great placement in recent years. Also i believe there will be more opportunities in the US.
This is my opinion. I would appreciate any input on how the opportunities compare for internationals in the US and UK

Is there no other programs besides PSW? How will international students that seem to make up a large percent of LSE and other european programs get jobs and internships in London?
