    Hi, I really need ur help to make a final decision.Which one is the best for IB ?

    I am considering ICMA, however I still can't figur out which level is the ICMA at. They claim their graduates could enter IB and their courses are better.Can someone tell me sth about ICMA? or shall I pick Manchester or Bristol? I've heard Bristol is on the list of target school, is that right ?


    ICMA-International Securities, Investment and Banking.
    Manchester-Mathematical Finance.
    Bristol-Finance and Investment.

    Bristol > Manchester > ICMA.

    Have never ever heard of anyone from ICMA getting in FO banking.

    I would look at the facilities that each course provider offers, and of course what links to the sector they have and most importantly accreditations. For example ICMA (http://www.icmacentre.ac.uk/about-us...accreditation/). I couldn't find anything beyond basic CFA institute recognition for Manchester and Bristol.

    ICMA competes against SDA Bocconi, Carnegie-Mellon and Cornell in various trading competitions. Again Bristol and Manchester nothing mentioned.

    ICMA is postgraduate and highly specialised the others are generalist departments that have woken up to the earning potential of running finance courses. I went to an open day at ICMA and met people from Harvard, Cambridge, McMaster, McGill, Warwick, Oxford and Imperial.

    Its the only one to be set up by a highly regarded in the industry professional body.
