    Hi, I am in my 3rd and last year of my bachelor in finance at a business school in a nordic country. I am planning to take my masters abroad and are considering UK. I am very unsure if i should go for a more general master in finance, or a master in risk management and financial engineering at Imperial. My ultimate goal would be asset management or IB.

    The reason why I am debating this, is that i already have learnt a lot of the more general finance stuff in my bachelor, and i am afraid its going to be a lot of repetition if i attend a general masters in finance.

    This is the finance specific courses i will have taken after my bachelor (Each is 7.5 ETCS credits). As you can see, I have covered a lot of the stuff i would learn at at msc in finance. Any inputs? I really think Imperials course look great, but I am afraid its going to hold me back if i want to do IB.
