    Hi all,

    Final year BSc Financial Mathematics here, I just got an offer from UCL for the MSc in Financial Mathematics program. I also hold an offer from Cass to do MSc in Finance.

    Which do you think would be the best option to go for in terms of getting a job in finance and banking in the city?
    Also if there is anyone from either of these universities I'd like to find out about your experience too, any help is appreciated at the moment as I need to make a decision pretty soon

    Thank you

    UCL's reputation is far better

    UCL MSc is more specialised and offers better career opps. Whereas City MSc Finance is generic and so many people have this degree. City firms look for quant jocks and if you have the maths skills, UCL. Simple supply and demand. Quant jocks jobs are better paid than general finance. Check the classifieds in FT.
