I am posting this thread because I am wondering what the LSE's diploma in accounting and finance is worth.
I am French and currently enrolled in EDHEC Business School, which is a business school (Grande Ecole) that ranks N°5 in France and I have the possibility go to LSE and get this "diploma" during my last year (I will also receive a "Master in Management" from my home school).
The main reason I am considering this diploma is that I can't access strategy consulting after EDHEC, but I am thinking that maybe my profile will be considered after graduating from the LSE.
I am wondering:
-What is this diploma worth? Is it sufficient to apply to strategy consulting firms? (McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Roland Berger, LEK, Oliver Wyman, AT Kearney Strategy&...)
-Is it necessary to pursue the MSc in Accounting and Finance after getting this diploma, in order to apply to strategy consulting firms or other selective jobs?
-As it is designed for non-finance students, how easy/hard are the courses? I have already studied a few courses of corporate finance, accounting, etc, and will be interning in M&A during 6 months next year... Will it be repetitive?
-Overall, is this diploma of any added value? Is it enough to benefit from LSE's brand name?
