I've recently got two offers - MSc Political Economy of Late Development, from LSE, and MSc International Public Policy, from UCL. Personally, I prefer the curriculum of UCL’s program (a bit more). 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?

You've basically answered your own question - LSE has a greater reputation worldwide, but you'd prefer the course at UCL.
UCL is a great University still, I'd go where you're happiest. It won't limit you in any way.
