    Just contemplating whether or not i should do a degree in Computer science BSc or Computer and management sciences BSc

    The Computer and management sciences is 2 years CS and 1 year in Warwick Business school.

    Which one would i prefer? I am edging towards C+MS if anything. I would like to Work in trading in front office (I think) hopefully if there are any desks in technology my degree could contribute to that.

    Which of the 2 degrees would be most beneficial, they are both quantitative, even the year in business school is management SCIENCES, not just management, and i could learn some accounting maybe a bit of finance math etc..

    would the extra year in business help me or give me an edge? thanks guys

    You would of thought by the amount of times you have created threads on here, you would of known the answer. It gives you about the same edge as a summer school/semester course in Harvard/LSE.

    Yes, I know that. Didn't you want to know the value of a Warwick Business school?

    no, i wanted to know which degree would be better for a career in trading, I would imagine the more quantitative the better but i think they are very similar in the level of mathematics. Therefore would the year in WBS as apposed to the final year of CS be more beneficial?

    It's entirely up to you. Obviously, the more mathematical the better. But, it won't give you that any or significantly low advantage. You could learn most of it on the job, so why waste modules studying it? Study a philosophy or politics module that interest you, if it's available to you.
