    Hi everybody,

    so whilst I know that the HEC Paris vs. LSE debate has been posted on TSR before, I havn't been able to find a comparison between HEC Paris' Msc International Finance and LSE's Accounting and Finance yet.

    I would like to go into bulge-bracket IB (DCM, ECM or M&A, maybe trading) or PE/AM in London and was wondering what the general consensus would be with regards to the two courses mentioned above in order to get a job in London with an outlook to go to Asia at some point?

    So dear TSR readers, if you could post a reply with either HEC or LSE and a short sentence explaining the reasoning that would be greatly appreciated.

    My preconceptions are that both unis have equally good placing ability in London, but that being in London with LSE will allow you to network better etc. Employers might not view the Msc Acc & Fin as favourably as the Msc International Finance as it focuses more on accounting and is not as selective as LSE's Msc Finance course, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    The Msc Finance program at HEC also seems to be more structured and they seem to take better care of their students (care more about placing them), however if anybody has experience of LSE please comment.

    Finally, please don't focus on the difference in cost as I want to compare the two programs solely on the success in getting my desired job.
