Masters of finance: Edinburgh Vs. Manchester Vs. Bath Vs. Nottingham Vs Cass Watch
Long time reader first time poster. Hope all of you are well across the pond. I'm an American, who is considering attending a masters of finance program in the UK, and was hoping to get feed back. I had a 3.25 gpa, with a 3. 5 major GPA, I have some solid work experience in consulting, as well as a recent internship in Investment Banking. I'm looking at programs in the UK because they have a solid reputation, and it's cheaper to attend a red brick in the UK vs attending a decent program here in the states. My goal after the program is continue working internationally in the field of investment banking. I have also been considering making a push to get into physical commodity trading, which is why I have included the masters of energy trade and finance at Cass on my list.
While not yet accepted into any program, I have been in contact with a few schools that have said I would be a strong candidate. I wanted to find out what you guys thought about these programs, what their placement is like domestically and internationally, and which one is going to give me to give me a better advantage/ which ones should I be focused on applying to?
I'm Currently looking at:
University of Edinburgh: Masters of finance
University of Manchester: Masters of finance
University of Bath: Masters of Finance or its Masters of management program
University of Nottingham: Masters of finance
Cass Business School : Masters of Energy Trade and finance
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
