Hi guys. I have offers for two masters courses and would really appreciate any information. The first is a MSc in Mathematic Trading and Finance and the other is MSc in Financial Analysis at LBS.

The course at CASS has been running much longer where as LBS's is very new. Rankings point towards LBS, but I think this is mainly swayed by MBAs. It is hard to find things comparing universities for Masters. In terms of the actual courses there are a lot of similarities and I am fairly indifferent.

After the MSc I plan to go into quantitative trading in London if possible. Really stumped, any suggestions/ guidance would be much appreciated!

Cheers

Hi,
Well you are going to succeed since they are both in London
On first glance because of the brand I would be more interested in LBS.
On the other hand if you are interested more in mathematical approach of trading Cass sounds more suitable, but then again you said that both are very similar, which somewhat surprise me.
I really dont think you can make mistake whichever you choose, you are on your path to quantitative trading in finance capital.
However, just took glance at courses on both and they do differ pretty much...had to register on LBS because of you for what you want Cass Master will equip you much better...not saying that you cannot do that with MFA just you will get much pertinent knowledge with mathematical trading course.
Congratulations and good luck !
PS. I was wondering what was your GMAT(GRE) score that got you in both ?

Thank you! I am very pleased with it!

Prep wise I bought the official GMAT text books. Started by doing some online mock tests and then basically doing questions from the books in the parts I was struggling most with (for me sentence correction). Then after a few days of that I would do another test and repeat. I took the 2 practise tests you get from GMAT towards the end of the period. For me I did 2 weeks of studying for it but in those weeks all I did was GMAT. This was my first attempt yes.

I would say the most important part of my prep was going over the questions I got wrong from the past exams, I know it sounds simple but it is the most effective way to work out what the mark scheme is looking for and It will help you identify patterns. As hard as it was, I also stayed well clear from any work the day before. When the exam is as long as it is, being completely rested has got to be a high priority!

I hope this helps
