Firstly,congratulations for getting into an admit into MSc in finance, which is one of the most competitive programs world-wide.
CASS has not yet disclosed its detailed class profile. Here is a brief of the student diversity-

Female students - 58%

As far as the job prospects are concerned, here are some pointers-

80% of its students found employment within 3 months of their graduation
Although CASS has not yet disclosed its employment statistics, you can expect good career prospects as it has been rated as "Top-Tier Employability school" by the QS Global 250 Business Schools 2017.
CASS’s Alumni are holding senior managerial positions all over the world in the sectors of banking, financial services, publishing and FMCG products.

My background:
- I attended MSc Finance during 16/17 at Cass.
- Studied Accounting & Finance from Warwick/Bath/Exeter/Lancaster type uni.

Class Profile:
- There are two big groups in the class: either from China or Europe.

- Mainly accounting, finance and economics background.

- For those studied in UK, they are from: UCL/ Durham/Warwick/Exeter/Lancaster. Some worked 1-2 years in finance experience.

The course:
- Investment, asset classes focus (material similar to MSc Investment Management)

- The material is not that difficult (many free time to explore London before mid-term) but the exam is quite challenging (see below). Good training in finance, valuation and Excel.

- For Accounting Student: it is harder for them to study because many of them lack of basic quantitative training like statistics, algebra (matrix) and calculus (taylor series)

- Term 1: Basic Training in Accounting and Finance (Financial Reporting, Asset Pricing, Corporate Finance, Econometrics)

Please note that the module “Financial Reporting” is quite challenging: from basic to very advanced materials (financial instruments, consolidate acc, fx accounting), steep learning curve.

- Term 2 Modules: topics in asset pricing, financial economics and empirical finance.

- Quite busy in term time: packed with projects, mid-term, career networking, job interviews and maybe CFA exams.

- Quite high failure rate for in Term 1 (25%-35%)

*Cass Grading System: 70% for distinction, 65% for merit (not 60%), 50% for pass.

- Teacher profile: Many did their PhD or taught in one of those uni before: Cambridge, LBS, LSE, Imperial.

- Cass reputation is quite strong in European area, less in Asia (compared with Warwick, LSE).

Other top finance courses in UK:

LBS: MFA or MiM (offers finance track)

Imperial: MSc Finance, MSc F&A, MSc IWM

Warwick: MSc Finance, MSc A&F

LSE: MSc Finance (and private equity), MSc A&F

Oxford: MFE
