Offers: Cass MSc in Finance vs LSE MSc in A&F [#permalink] New post 24 May 2014, 03:29
ey guys,

I've got two conditional offers for the upcoming 2014/15 school calendar (need to retake the TOEFL and get 107, shouldn't be an issue, and attend a summer course in the case of the LSE):

1) MSc in Finance at Cass Business School
2) MSc in Accounting & Finance at London School of Economics

What do you guys think? Is the LSE here the clear choice? Only "issue" for me is that I don't particularly enjoy accounting but there are only 3-4 mandatory accounting classes in the case of the LSE MSc in A&F, other than that you can virtually get the same degree as the MSc in Finance.

For info, as of today, I want to work in a financial markets related role, rather than corporate finance. Something in sales/trading/hedge fund/quant shop....but this might change some day. (btw, I've undertaken 1 IB back office internship and am currently doing an IB Sales internship in a BB)

Only got the offer from the LSE 2 days ago so my decision process has just started but as of now, I think that refusing this offer from the LSE would be a big mistake and I will regret it later on if I don't take this chance.

What do you guys think?

Cheers

I went to an event called Euromasters in Germany. It was a gathering of business schools from Europe to take part in some sports competitions. The two British schools were Cass and LSE.

When LSE came out for the presentation of their team, their shirts read the following: Who is Cass?

You know the answer.

I agree. Even though I might enjoy some of Cass' courses more, at the end of the day, having LSE on your CV will be a life long "badge" of quality. Nowhere else in the world do you have prime ministers, CEOs, nobel prize winning economists, world leaders,... come and give speeches. Short term, Cass might make more sense, but long term, definitely LSE.
