    Hi! I’m new here and this is my first post after lurking for a while and getting some wonderful insights into the postgraduate field in the UK. Hoping maybe I can get some thoughts about choosing between LSE and UCL.

    I've got two offers - MSc Political Economy of Late Development, from LSE, and MSc International Public Policy, from UCL. Personally, I marginally prefer the curriculum of UCL’s program. But the reputation of LSE is just unbeatable and I’m thinking if it may open more doors career-wise, especially if I want to work in IOs (development-centric or policy-centric).

    Which program may be better in terms of teaching/academic quality and career prospects? Has anyone had experience with the two programs/schools or the IO career?

    Thanks!!

    An opinion - since no university course can ever teach you everything you actually need and really use in your future career, but prepare you as best they can by giving you a good foundation as well as develop your capability (more important) to acquire and apply knowledge - if that be the case, would it not be better to go to the university with the best reputation for the longer term? Long way of saying LSE. haha
