Hello Student Room,
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.
