HI guys,

I hope to get some help regarding my bschool decision.
I am currently in the last year of my bachelor and have applied for several ms finance programs for 2016 intake. So far I received offers from

RSM - MSc Finance and Investments
Kings College London - MSc Banking and Finance
Cass Business School - MSc Quantitative Finance

I won't take RSM, so I am now struggling between Kings College and Cass.

1) The program - Quant Finance Vs Banking and Finance

I am coming from a bachelor in business administration with major in finance and currently taking CFA. Taking that into account I guess the MSc in Banking and Finance would be quite straight forward and I could get a very good grade.
On the other hand I could enhance my skills much further with the msc in quantitative finance, especially in terms of programming, matlab etc, but its gonna be a pain as, most people in the program come from math/physics background and I am afraid the final grade might suffer on my lack of quant skills

2) University vs Business School

Comparing Cass with Kings is like comparing apples with oranges. Cass is a pure business school, which is ranked #20 worldwide in the financial times. Kings is a research university, which is ranked #19 worldwide in the QS ranking and which includes many notables alumni such as 12 Nobel laureates and many heads of states.
Having said that, Kings is obviously more prestige, while I guess it has fewer connections to the financial industry, especially since the MSc Banking and Finance is a new program and I gonna be in the first ever class.

I would very much appreciate some opinions regarding the two schools. And yes I am very well aware of the fact that oxbridge, UCL, LSE and Imperial are better but I have offers for KCL and Cass.


Thank you very much guys!!
