IE MSc Finance is Top programme in Europe. And the scholarships usually look good on the CV.
LSE MSc Accounting & Finance is known for accepting people who are rejected from MSc Finance, so it's not that prestigious.
I'm doubt LSE takes in IE msc Finance rejects. It would more likely be another way around since LSE belongs to(or near) the league of oxford and cambridge. I strongly believe that majority of students would take LSE over IE. Yes, it's true IE may be better in certain aspects, but all in all, LSE would generally be a better school. I've nv heard from any of my friends who got rejected by IE and yet got accepted to LSE. It's always the other way around.
Yes. while Kentakobashi mentioned that going for a specific Msc for it's brand isn't right. You must be aware that the brand LSE doesn;t just appear over night. It;s branded becus of the reputations they have built up over long periods with Top notch professors, academic research, good alumni, strong links with the finance sector. Besides, IE is only well-known in the europe/uk country. Not many know what's IE is in US/Asia. That said, you shld factor in a few important aspects or areas that are important to you in pursuing a Msc in Finance in a particular B school. What factors do you think it's most important for you?
