Msc Finance for IB?Watch
Now I want to work in Investment Banking, preferably in a front office position in maybe something like Mergers and Acquisitions or Trading.
I am currently in the process of applying for masters programmes to boost my employability. I have an offer from University of Nottingham for Msc Finance and Investment. I am also applying to Warwick (Msc Finance), Imperial (Msc Finance), LSE (Msc Economics and Finance) and Cambridge (Mphil Finance) and Cass (Msc Finance and Investment).
Due to the extremely high tuition fees I am more then likely to study at Nottingham or Cass as the tuition fees are a third of the other universities plus they also offer some scholarships. I have been told that I would be better off studying Economics at Nottingham rather then Finance as it is a more quants based course however the Nottingham Business School is ranked 6th in UK.
Now my main questions are:
1) Is it worth me going to Nottingham or Cass as they are both only semi-target unis and don't have the prestige of the other universities
2) If I do go to these universities, would I be better off studying Economics rather than Finance.
If you’re looking at places like Warwick for £32,300 you should probably consider more affordable places like Durham too? There are also some highly rated French and Spanish unis with much more affordable courses taught in English. £45,000 for a one year MSc plus having to live in London is just ludicrous to me.
As far as Finance vs Economics, Finance is never a bad bet from what I’ve read. Which Cass course are you looking at that is so much cheaper than LSE etc.? The course you mentioned is 2 years part-time?
