    I can't help but think threads like this are used to try and work out how people will be prejudiced when reading ones CV. My thoughts are that generally speaking employers are more interested in the person and what they can bring as opposed to the colour of their tie. And if an employer was more interested in which uni you went to rather than your ability, would you really want to work for that sort of business?

    LSE is better. Both have same grad prospects and Warwick's reputation is globally rising fast, mentioned in another post that they're opening another campus in California too. But yeah, overall rn, LSE is stronger.

    I would liken this question to: Which is more prestigious, Columbia University or Dartmouth College? Of course, they are both prestigious schools. One is just more well-known than the other.

    Warwick and LSE are both prestigious, and almost equally in that regard. LSE does have the advantage of being more well-known largely due to it being a postgraduate powerhouse, in London and a much older institution. But for those people who care, would view them almost equally prestigious. LSE is the more well-known brand world-wide though.

    Remember however that:
    Prestige =/= popularity

    Precisely, it is not a good comparison.
