MSc Finance: Cass Business School vs Durham Business School

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hello everybody!
    I've got an offer for the MSc in Banking and International Finance at Cass BS and another one for the MSc Finance and Investment at Durham Business School. As I would like to pursue a career in banking (not necessarily IB) in UK, I want to ask you if it is worth spending 25.000 pounds for Cass BS vs 10.500 for Durham BS. (Please, keep in mind that the difference of costs is greater than 14.500 pounds including living costs etc.).

    Any help will be highly appreciated

    PS: I've read in some surveys that the graduate starting salaries for banking and finance students are around 35.000 pounds. As it should be the gross amount, what is the net amount?

    Cass. Don't make the same mistake I did. Durham BS is far lesser quality than the rest of the uni. You get what you pay for. Nobody I know at DBS has gotten into IB this year, fyi.
