LSE MSc Finance / Finance & Economics Job Opportunities?  [#permalink]

Guys, I just received the admit offer from LSE MSc Finance via e-mail yesterday night, now I have to make a tough call.. I've already put down my deposit at Vanderbilt's MSF program for the fall. Any current / past LSE attendees around who would like to enlighten me about the career opportunities coming out of LSE? I'd love to go, but I don't want to be picking up roots and flying to London for a year only to have no luck finding a job afterward. I'm interested in IB, and I know LSE has good ties with IB in London.

Help me out, guys!

I would say LSE beats Vandy... I applied to LSE's MSc Finance earlier this year but sadly didn't get in. Owen is good but seriously LSE has a bigger name, bigger access to London based IB jobs, and probably a richer experience. I guess the only drawback would be getting jobs in US right after LSE in this market. But since things seem to be sort of stabilizing (even if the fundamentals are not improving) you shouldn't be too worried about getting a job in UK.. good luck!

Hi there,

My apologies for delay in responding to you. Hope you made a decision you feel comfortable with!

I completed the MSc Finance at LSE this past June and am originally from the states. There were 3 americans in my program out of about 55. Prior to the programme, I had 3 years of work experience in strategy for a high-tech company and decided to pursue the MSc Finance part-time while working full-time in corprate development for a venture backed comapny in London.

I think the MSc Finance is viewed in two lights. The full-time program is for kids with very little work experience or looking to make a transition into Finance if they are not already in it. From what I've seen, the recruitment and job placement is very good in London. I believe 90+% of kids have a placement or have been recruited into a full-time analyst program. If you are coming from the states and looking to go back, it is not that easy to be recruited into a position back in America. Rather it makes more sense to take an analyst role here in London for two years, as they recruit directly on campus and LOVE LSE. Luckily, the UK govt has made it so students can apply for a 2 year extension on their visa to stay in London after they graduate.

The part-time program is more geared towards students who have progressed in their career. The average age is around 28-29 (similar to a MBA) and the degree seems to be viewed more as a MBA - given that the average candidate has significant work experience.

If you are opting for the full-time program, which I am assuming you are, I would absolutely recommend LSE over Vandy but be prepared to stay here for 2-3 years if you want to progress in your career.

If you have any questions, just drop me a message.

gr8 to hear from someone who has actually done the course from LSE, iam a software engineer from india having around 2years work ex with Infosys Tech. in banking software solutions, i have also been involved with a NGO for more than a year, iam really interested in the Msc in Finance at LSE, but am not sure if it will be the right course for me,i want to make a switch into Finance, but am in doubt whether i should go in for a traditional MBA or the MSc in Finance. Also do you have any idea what the average salary is for an analyst position after LSE in London??

Hi all
I am hoping someone with any experience or knowledge could offer some advice.
I recently graduated this summer with a First in International Management China and am hoping to apply for the MSc in MSc Finance/Finance & Accounting at LSE. I have rung LSE myself with queries relating to how I can prove my quantitative skill and whether it is worth me applying (given that management isn't a highly quantitative course). All advice/recommendations were rather vague. Any and all advice/help from gmatclub on whether or not I am, at least, a viable candidate is much appreciated:

International Management China 2012-17 (First, Honours), SOAS university (lots of finance/accounting/economics courses)
ACTs 33/36 (American high school exam)
Experience gained during banking/trading and asset management internships in HK/Beijing/London
I currently manage a portfolio of stocks, trade forex and am a CFA level 1 candidate. experience running a small business.

my transcript looks good but I am worried about an econometrics module during my first year which I got a Third (49%) in....hopefully that won't be too important....
My main worry is that, although i've heard of successful candidates from non-quantitative backgrounds getting offers, my own application (at least for Msc Finance if not Msc Finance and Accounting) may be rejected because my first degree was not highly quantitative.

I've prepared my references and personal statement accordingly and am now just waiting for my GMAT test later this month (hoping for 700 and Q49 at least). In the past, have LSE courses in Finance/Accounting closed by January or can i afford to 'leave' it til then and apply after my GMAT?
