University College Dublin (UCD - Ireland) Vs. University of Stirling (Scotland) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Ok, ok, I hope this will be my final thread, and with that I won't be annoying you guys anymore, but I really need your insight on this last question.. Which one would you choose out of the following?

    1. Stirling (Scotland) - MSc Investment Analysis
    2. University College Dublin (UCD - Ireland) - MSc Finance

    I have received offers from both of these places, and I'm really having a difficult time choosing between the two...

    The target is to get into areas such as Investment Banking, Portfolio Management, Equity, Trading or Market Analysis.

    Maybe an important piece of information is that, I actually live in Dublin, and have studied through primary, secondary and tertiary education in Dublin too. I think companies would like to know that "candidates" for a job can be flexible, independant as well as being adaptable, so would going to Stirling be a better choice in this sense?

    Also if you'd have any info on Careers service on these two places, or what the average time/percentage of students/whatever with regards to getting a job (after all, this is the probably the sole reason for doing this MSc) after achieving this MSc would be greatly appreciated!!
