    I've recently been accepted into LBS's Masters in Management (MiM) programme and LSE's MSc Accounting and Finance programme. I want to get into Investment Banking upon graduation, so which course should I take? Acc & Finance seems more practical, but is the LBS brand name more important?

    well, if you mean 'academic rigor' by 'practical' then certainly lse all the way. I think both has an excellent brand name, so it really depends on what you are looking to get from grad study. I think mim's a lot more focused on networking, case studies, interview/cv skills throughout the year. If you look at the 2012 report, however, you will see that 40% of the graduates went into consulting. I'm not so sure how lse acc and finance outputs are though
