    I do Banking & International Finance and the prospects are immense. It depends which line you want to go in, IB or Accounting (since the latter course has exemptions I think).

    Banking & Finance is more established at Cass since A&F is new.

    Hi Awakening

    I'm going into the 2nd year of my A&F course at Cass. If you are serious about becoming a Chartered Accountant A&F is the course for you. It will give you all the knowledge you need to excel in the ACA exams, giving you 8 exemptions upon graduation as well as give you solid knowledge of Corporate Finance so you could do very well in Professional Services (e.g. at Big-4 firms). BIF is more general and will give you an overall solid knowledge of finance which includes Corporate Finance, Investing etc. There are Accounting electives in BIF if you decide to pursue a career in Accountancy after your first year is done.

    The acid test is, do you want to go straight into Accountancy/Corporate Finance (choosing A&F will give you all the grounding you need) or do you want to keep your options in Finance open and decide later on (in which case BIF is the way to go)?

    Hope this helps. Good luck on your application!
