    Hi everyone, I have 2 offers to choose:
    1. City University London : MSc Investment Management
    http://www.cass.city.ac.uk/courses/m...rses-details=0
    2. UCL : MSc Management
    http://www.ucl.ac.uk/msi/study/msc-m...ultancyproject

    Regarding the course, I am interested in all of them, mainly because I haven't had a clear career goal UCL's Management might be too general knowledge even with its specialised finance stream. Could anyone tell me is the career service in MSc Management highly linked to finance industry? How does the consultancy project differ from normal dissertation?

    Investment Mgt in Cass , on the other hand, might be too specialsed if I plan to find a job in other industries?

    However, what I concern most is that many job recruiters in Asia ( or maybe even in the UK) select the candidates by their diploma rankings. UCL is ranked worldwide 1st-tiered universities (4th in the QS 2012/13 World University Rankings) but doesn't have a b-school that I'm afiraid the networking is weaker. Cass ranks 40th in FT 2013 global MBA ranking, but the overall ranking of City University London is not parallel to Cass. No sure whether the connection to job market of Cass outweighs the reputation of UCL when finding a job in the UK or Greater China...I am totally torn, can anyone give me some advice?

    UCL is a targeted uni in the Financial industry, City/Cass isn't.

    You can easily verify that by the sponsors each universities' relevant society receives, and by looking at which companies visits which university campus in the UK.

    With regards to job finding in the UK, it is pretty tough for overseas students in the current climate, still possible however, it depends on your own past experiences and personal developments. For abroad, choose UCL.

    Networking wise, both university will have companies and past alumni visiting during the academic year, I am pretty certain UCL have much more alumni in the financial industry compared to City/Cass.

    If you decides to accept UCL, watch out for UCL Economics and finance society, they have postgrad officer which can offer you more advice on the matter, and I heard he is awesome. :rolleyes:

    I just got my offer from UCL for MSc in Management. I have also received an offer from Cass Business School for MSc in Management programme. I have been told that MSc in Management at Cass Business School is a tough one, not to mention the fact that its course content has 19 core modules. I am also waiting for my scheduled interview at Imperial College (MSc in Management). My field of studies has to do with Agricultural and Food Sciences and my aspiration is to find a job in a multinational consumer goods company at London, such as Unilever, Diageo, Procter & Gamble, etc. I am a little bit confused. Any advice ?

    Which way should I go ? Though I am guessing UCL is better than King's , I am a little confused about where to place Cass ?
