    I'd say Banking & Int' Finance, but have a look at the courses and the modules and see what interests you most, as you're likely to do better in something you enjoy.

    Also consider what you want to go into once you leave.

    seems everyone agrees on Banking and Int'l Finance

    Another question:
    If i get an offer from LSE or Kings for BSc Management, how would that offer then compare to Cass' offer for Banking and Int'l Finance from an employers perspective i.e. which one would look better on a CV etc

    LSE is a good name alround, very good infact, I'd choose it over Cass, but defintely I would choose the course i would like most, if they on par then LSE, if you get LSE offer for same course as Kings, theres no real question there since LSE>Kings

    I would go for BSc management personally but I don't know what your other course really entails. With regards to unis, LSE trumps the lot but Cass over Kings simply cos they are more specialist.

    It depends on what you want to do with the degree.

    Management is a very general degree and for the most part it is very unlikely that any employer out there that wants a Business school graduate to be specialized at this level. Even banks are unlikely to actually specify that they want someone with a Banking and Finance specific degree, but it becomes a plus if you have one.

    Banking and Finance, I am not sure about Cass, but the one I took required a fairly good understanding of calculus and extremely good quantitative skills just to pass and you can expect plenty of homework After graduation, as this is seen as a specialized business degree chances are you would be confined to working in the financial services industry But there are options elsewhere however it is unlikely it would put you at any more of an advantage than your mate who studied management

    As for LSE vs Cass...... LSE ranks much higher, but a lot more will be expected out of you However, on as an employer I would still look at your CV as a whole and importance will be placed upon your final class standing, internships and how your writing skills in deciding whether to give you an interview or not. As for giving you the job, that depends on the interview
