Hi,

I've recently confirmed my place at this course (2011-12) and now I'm desperately trying to locate the rest of the pack. Any other lost msc in finance offer holder here?

Applied in December, got an offer in January - roughly 30 days waiting time in total, mind you that's including holidays. As for my background, its pretty standard: overseas non-eu student, BA 1st class (mid-tier uni), 2 years prof experience (banking/consulting).

And what's your background if I may ask?

Im on a business related BA in the SE england, expected to graduate with 2.1 No related experience but want to get into banking and finance career. I guess it will be a long wait for me as my two referees still haven't sent off the references.

Would be great to know about your final choice (and the reasoning behind it)

I got into MSc. in Finance at St. Andrews, as well as MSc. in Economics and International Financial Economics at the University of Warwick. I really like the study programme of MSc. in Finance, and I'm more of a Finance guy than Economics, but University of Warwick seems to be more popular. Any comments on my dilemma, anyone?

If you want to study finance, then study it instead of wasting your time studying economics when it's not really what you want to do.

See, I plan to work for financial services/banks/consultancy firms after I complete my master degree, and these institutions hire people with both finance and economics degree (provided you prove your worth) , since economics and finance share many common characteristics. So, right now, more than my choice of degree, I think I should rather focus on the reputation of the University I'm going to. And since I'm an international student, the ranking guides are my only source of information about universities, and University of Warwick is usually placed higher than University of St. Andrews in most of the universities ranking guides I've come across.
