    Hi everyone, I have 2 offers to choose:
    1. City University London : MSc Investment Management
    2. UCL : MSc Management

    I previously worked as a FX corporate dealer in a Japanese corporate bank for 1.5 years and now in one of Big Four as a tax specialist for 3 months. After post-graduate I want to work in finance-related industry. Anyone here suggest me which to choose based on the connection to and reputation in the job market, or other factors I need to consider? I want to find a job in Great London, maybe the location of Cass and UCL will help me fit in.

    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.

    However, what I concern most is that many job recruiters select the candidates by their diploma rankings? UCL is ranked worldwide 1st-tiered universities but doesn't have a business 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. Not sure whether the connection to job market of Cass outweighs the reputation of UCL when finding a job in the UK or Greater China.. can anyone give me some advice?

    You've asked this question several times already, people's answers are not going to change within a couple of weeks.
