Hey,
I am a non uk final engineering student. I have three year average of over 80% and am well on track for an excellent first. Having been unseccesful in final round interviews with Susqeuhanna and JP Morgan I decided to persue prostgraduate education. I was recently accepted into Cass MSc MTF, I would like to hear from some current/past students or even other offer holders as to what their opinions are. I need to accept or decline by the 13th. I have also applied to
Imperial MSc Finance & MSc Financial Eng & Risk Mngmnt.
Cheers

Imperial is way better than Cass. Basically you pay to get into Cass. They open lots of programs and take in loads of students without much screening. As long as you reach the minimum requirement you get an offer. I personally won't bother to apply there. Only based on personal opinion and information I had though, no offence.

How is it that Cass is only one place behind Tanaka Business school on Ft's EU business school ranking tables?

What are you basing your information on?

Just my friends' experiences. And the interesting thing is - they all get offers within a week while their references still haven't been sent by the time they got an offer. Surely this must mean something (at least from our perspective). Ultimately none of my mates (about 10-11 there) accepted the offers from Cass and went for Imperial/LSE/Warwick etc. They all agreed that as long as you meet minimum requirement you pay to get in. Hope it helps. You can base your judgement heavily on rankings too. It's always subjective in these selections.

Do not quite agree on this. Imperial is surely better than Cass, but Cass is also a well respected university. It is consistently ranked in the top Business Schools in the UK and Globally. See for example the Financial Times Ranking, were the Cass MBA is ranked 45 in the world and only a handful of UK business Schools scored higher. An MBA ranking is used as a good indicator of how good and reputable a business school is.

Additionally, City University to which Cass belongs is being accepted in the University of London. This shows that the university has good research and reputation otherwise it would not be accepted in the first place.

Also, the average IB and UCAs entry points for most undergraduate degrees at CASS is quite high and at par with other reputable places such as Durham and Edinburgh University.

Finally, in the latest Research Excellence Framework Cass ranked 7th overall. Only LSE, Cambridge, Imperial, Oxford, London Business School and Cardiff scored higher.
