    Hey guys,

    I'm from the Uni. of Nottingham, I'm planning on doing two courses this summer at LSE. Just wondering what the benefits are in terms of CV, career in finance, and also application for a MSc in Finance at an elite school (i.e. lse, imperial, ox, cam). Also, if anyone has actually done this before, please can you share your experiences you've had and whether its worth while doing over the summer.

    I haven't actually yet considered doing an internship at this moment (i'm in the 2nd year) because i wish to do this next year since i still have a summer free before i start my masters in september 2012 (which in this case, i am still classed as a penultimate student eligible to apply next september). Therefore, this coming summer will be focused towards the lse summer school in preparation for my postgraduate applications.

    Any advice would be helpful, thanks.

    It seems to me to be a money making scheme for LSE. I can't imagine it being particularly beneficial for your CV in terms of employment. The only reason I'd ever consider it (if I didn't study at LSE) is if I wanted to do a Masters, but I have no idea how good it looks on Masters application forms.
