In a bit of a dilemma. So here goes my story.

I graduated from a top 10 economics school in 2011 with a 2.1 and have worked in global markets for a year (not trading, but its a middle/front office type role) outside UK.

I am not eligible to apply to at least to Deutsche Bank because they require you to have graduated within a year of starting. I tried searching this information for other banks but none of them were clear - could someone please let me know what the deal is? I'll be applying for 2013 start so would have been 2 years since I graduated.

Would a Masters in Finance a Imperial help my profile at all? Aside from making me eligible to apply for every graduate scheme out there, would it add any value to my profile?

I also have a MSc Management at UCL offer, but I have a feeling if I did go down the Masters route taking this option might be a career suicide?

I will be applying for middle office CIMA roles/Operations roles at investment banks, Corporate Finance at Big4, Investment Consulting and Asset Management.

Since you already have good work experience then an MSc may be a good idea. I honestly don't think you need one though!

Yeah I thought the Imperial name might add little to my profile. I was thinking I would be able to compete with graduates applying for Finance roles at Investment Banks due to my work experience? I've also had a stint in Corporate Finance in a Big 4, Tax at a mid tier firm and Management Consulting (Private Equity project).
