    KCL being in London will help you immensely with job opportunities, especially being as both Universities are essentially on the same footing in terms of prestige.

    I *think* they don't offer this course but you can apply for Business management.

    In terms of international visibility and prestige I would say KCL. After my Msc here at CT I will attempt a PhD at Kings CL if I can secure funding!

    Had you looked at the forum title (or indeed read the OP) you would have noticed that OP is asking about postgraduate advice. And you're linking him an undergraduate course. No wonder you (might) go to kings

    I think so yes. Speaking as a international postgrad from the States I would say they are perceived to be level for this Msc and in general but I am not a definite authority. Nobody is an authority on this board! I think the choice is about and your needs now. Do you feel you benefit more from living in London and being closer to better network opportunities in the capitol? Or a more close knit community and academic hub in Bristol? Myself I would choose Kings because it is in London and that is more interesting socially for an int. student but you never know.


    Do you mind telling me where else you have applied? And what you plan to do afterwards eg: finance, PhD, banking?

    What GPA do they want?

    Warwick probably has a better reputation in business areas than the other 2, WBS is well known for being a top school.
    Though the KCL London advantage may place it on par.
