hey guys, I got an offer from CASS and UCL for msc management.
Which one is better? I heard that CASS business school is very famous in UK and it is ranked in the top 5 business school in UK and even 2nd in master in management in the financial times. However, the reputation of city university is not quite good and not very well-known compared to UCL.
UCL management course is very new and Im scared that the career support and alumni would not be as good as CASS. Please help meee..
PS. Im an international student which would like to work in consultant field or large companies such as Unilever. I want to work in London a few years and then back to my home country,Thailand.

I have also received an offer from Cass Business School for MSc management programme. I have heard that course content for current MSc is far too difficult especially for students who have not attended business and economic courses during their undergraduate studies. However, is there any enrolled student who can confirm this statement ?

They do both. Here's the undergrad ranking for associated studies (4th).

I want to do economics at uni to help myself become a successful trader, would you recommend I do economics or the finance and investment degrees they offer at City?

Personally, whichever you enjoy. To get into Investment Banking (such as myself) you need to look primarily at the university you attend. You'd want to do some form of quantitative subject at Target/Semi-Target universities. It's important to note the distinction between City university & Cass business school, which is what its known for. They offer 6 subjects:

Accounting & Finance
Acturial Science
Banking & International Finance
Business Studies
Investment & Financial Risk Management
Management

For British graduates entering investment banking on graduate schemes in London (this accounts for approximately 90% of the intake), there is a clear trend of preference amongst the banks for Oxbridge and Russell Group graduates, although investment banks do accept applications from all university graduates. Attending LSE/UCL/ Warwick/ Imperial/Cass Business School is also beneficial.


The majority of the intake top tier front office roles at the top 6 investment banks, namely Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, UBS and JPMorgan will come from the top 6 universities on the list.
Below that, candidates from universities further down the list will find it easier to get into middle-office or back-office roles, and may be able to access front-office roles at non-big 6 banks such as ABN Amro, BNP Paribas and Commerzbank.

How long would a postgrad in investment & risk management be?
Also, which route are you taking to get into banking? I'm 16 and although I know it's early, I'm just curious..

MSc's are generally one year, full time, although you'd need to have studied an associated quantitative degree preferably at a top institution to get into Cass. I've recently been on a pre-uni AC workshop Credit Suisse. They recommended Cass due to the vocational aspects of the degree and the ease in transferability. I'll be starting 'BSc Investment & Financial Risk Management' with Cass in aims to becoming a trader.

Always risky going for a brand new degree. However, as a consolation, it's at UCL - one of the most prestigious and historic universities in England. For that reason, in many professional careers you will see a strong alumni support. One would assume the course wouldn't be too shabby either.

CASS is good. You will find an acceptable alumni support in certain professions i.e. finance, perhaps not as much as UCL. UCL will have alumni in a wider range of professions, however.

Also, what a levels do you guys recommend I take?
I'm already choosing maths and economics.
Also, I already know I don't want to take f.maths and a language so any other suggestions would be of great help!
Thanks

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 ?
