    Hi everyone, how about Cass vs. UCL?
    1. Cass Business School, 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 specialised 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 afraid 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...I am totally torn, can anyone give me some advice?

    UCL's course does sound too general, but it does have a better reputation. I would avoid City University as it sounds a bit of a joke in comparison to Cass/UCL. I would do background information on the lecturers/ facilities there as they'll ultimately be the people who will assist towards getting your qualification.

    Can I ask what qualifications/ grades you had to work for this 'mega Japanese' corporate bank. Coming to the end of my degree studying Economics and wondering if it's worth applying for IB Jobs. Can I also ask for the link of where you found the IB's targeting schools?

    Thanks

    Hi CanaryWolf thank you for your reply.

    I think I could enter Japanese bank mostly because I can speak Japanese and my major are finance and economics.
    As for IB's targeting schools, I saw that on Chinese forum so I could not ensure if it's reliable but I take that into account since I could work in Great China could in the future lol

    One cannot simply avoid City University London whilst going to Cass, that was my point.
