Do you know if the diploma program by itself is good enough to have a good career is enough? What do people say at the university?
The reason is that I dont think I can spend two years studying and I cant get into MSc Finance straightaway as I do not have any Finance knowledge.
As i understood, diploma programme is the acquintance with finance...
Basic principles are explained, but you are not going too much into details.
You can see that looking at the courses in LSE:
Principles of Finance
Financial Reporting and Management and Financial Reporting
Then you have options to choose from, which are all pretty much general also....
Thus i believe Diploma would be a good course if you want to seek a strategist carrer in some investment bank.... You know how everything works, you know where to look for info, but you do not have the specific skills....
However, if you want to be an analyst, doing valuations, giving advice to people
then without a Masters degree you won't be able to do it i feel...
This is my personal opinion...
