I have an offer from LSE(AAB) and an offer from Warwick(AAA) both for management. Which one is better reputations wise. I'm also very concerned about the social aspect and having a good university life. Which course is better in your opinion as well.
Thanks

For Management, Warwick no contest.
The reputations are seemingly on par with each other.

They're hard to split for reputation. I suspect Warwick socialisation is easier and cheaper than at LSE but maybe people attending either university can give a better informed view. Look at how far you would have to stagger home in each case, it might be important.

Warwick Business School (WBS) is highly regarded world-wide. It is now a highly ranked business school by both Financial Times and Forbes. People in the banking and financial industry have heard of WBS, and must have heard of it as a highly respected, very competitive school. The alumni network of WBS is also very active and strong. The management program is housed at WBS, and therefore, all graduates of the program would enjoy the rich resources of the business school, including the career assistance placement program, which will give their graduates equal footing with grads of LSE and Oxbridge in the application process at top bulge bracket firms.

There is an over the top Warwick circle-jerk on TSR. LSE blows every university bar Oxford and Cambridge out the water for getting a career in anything business and finance related.

I go to LSE, and from my experience whilst the Warwick hype is slightly over the top. It probably sends very similar figures into top banks to LSE and Oxbridge. The distinction between those four is not massive in terms of career opportunities (except at a very select few organisations)

LSE certaintly does not 'blow it out of the water' for getting into FO banking..not sure about the Big 4 though.

(The site has no data for Management grad stats from Warwick... looking at stats for Economics grads would be the next best option)

We'll just have to agree to disagree I guess. In my opinion it goes something like:

Oxford
Cambridge

LSE

Imperial




UCL
Warwick







Other unis like Bristol, Durham, Edinburgh, King's, Bath...probably a few others I can't remember.

I have no bias here by the way, I go to King's and want to become an actuary... but internships with anything to do with finance help with that, so I hang around these forums.

I agree with your opinion, but for the sheer hope of getting a well paid city job, I think the difference is not too important.

The OP hasn't said he wants to be an investment banker. He's said he is interested in BOTH reputation and having a good social time at university.

due to us having a ridiculous careers service, pretty sure its top for that. At recent big 4 spring week round 15/40 people were from warwick

Imperial does not offer bsc in econ. And what is ranked here anyway?

LSE is more well known internationally than Warwick. Its current batch of first year students comes from 51 countries. Why not LSE?

Reputation-wise, LSE wins by a thousand miles.
