Lancaster (MSCI/OR) vs LSE (Management)

    • Thread Starter

    Hello everyone,

    I'm an international student and I have a dilemma regarding choosing where to go to and I'd really appreciate the help of the board here! I'm more inclined to one of them, but I'd still want to see what other unbiased people would say about it

    My dilemma is between Lancaster Management School (Management Science) vs LSE (Management); I've got offers for both;

    Lancaster Pros:
    - boyfriend is there
    - flexible course structure (important advantage)
    - Management Science/Operational Research seems like a more specific degree than LSE's generic 'Management'
    - good facilities
    - cheaper to live

    Lancaster Cons:
    - not so well known (maybe not so respected by employers?)

    LSE pros:
    - prestige and (possibly?) better career prospects due to the name

    LSE cons:
    - not really happy with the degree structure
    - London (expensive)

    So basically, my question is whether it's worth the trade-off between LSE's prestige and Lancaster's rest?

    which shall I go for?

    Much appreciated
