Please advise - LSE vs SSE for IB [#permalink] New post 18 Jun 2013, 04:38
So, I got offers for LSE MSc in Accounting & Finance and for SSE (Stockholm school of economics) MSc in Accounting & Finance.
The thing is, I was admitted to SSE some months ago and decided to go there at first so I did intensive swedish language courses but, then, about a month ago I was admitted to LSE and I am now seriously considering going there.
I have 2 internships (one at a small accounting office and one at a consulting firm, not very known though). I aim to work at a BB preferably in London but anywhere in Europe would do.
I'm afraid that as I don't have a finance internship, I would be better with a two-year program (like SSE's) in order to have an extra summer.
Could you please tell me your opinions?

Both are top programs. I would probably lean towards SSE because of the two years vs. one.

thank you for your answer!
I also think that the two years program will be better suited for me, will also give me the opportunity to enhance my CV as I don't have many extracurriculars.
But I'm not sure about SSE's reputation outside Scandinavia...Whereas LSE would be a safe choice in terms of reputation.

congrats, you are admitted to two of best business schools around Europe, however if I was in same situation, I would definitely choose SSE because of two years study and chance to get more specialized knowledge than it was in one year programs. Moreover at SSE students are being able to find very good jobs around Europe before graduation and many banks in London takes graduates of SSE each year, therefore I would prefer SSE and finally if not secret what was your GMAT score that was enough to be admitted to SSE? Good luck.
