    So ucl has a new management degree programme and I'm intrigued by it as I wanted to go ucl for economics but won't probably get in even if i have the grades, so I was thinking of applying to economics at Nottingham instead, is the uni brand that important?? What would you pick?

    I would choose Nottingham. Partially because I don't want to live in London and partly because even though this program is at UCL, it's new and bound to have some kinks to work out. But you have to do what you think is best for you.

    I don't mind living in London, I was just wondering that because it's ucl I would have better chances because of its name and how the big 4 target ucl

    And that's a perfectly good point. Have you visited both?

    But you also don't want to make the wrong choice and spend three years at a university you hate because you could potentially get a better job.

    I'd pick Nottingham, it's a respected Uni and Econ is a respected discipline.

    I've seen a bit of them and have heard good things so yeah like location wise I would take ucl any day as I live closer to London than to Nottingham even though I plan on not living home and I would love to live in London but I'm just interested in that if I plan on going into investment banking or any other "competitive" role, which uni/course would give me a better chance

    Economics > Management any day. You would be better off doing Economics at Kent than doing Management ANYWHERE.
