LSE or London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine?Watch
as well as the LSHTM for their MSc in Health Policy, Planning and Financing
(which is offered also in collaboration with LSE, but the awarding body would essentially be the LSHTM, or UOL).
My background is in both social sciences and more financial public spending matters. And I have decided to specialise in the sector of health. That's why the title of the course at LSHTM is slightly more attractive to me. However, since both courses share a core module in Health Financing at LSE and have fairly similar structures, the decision on which to go for seems to stem down to which of the above would have, at first glance the more reputable position on paper.. I suppose.
I am obviously aware of LSE's reputation. However, I don't want to opt for LSE simply because its LSE. Considering that I'm likely to look for a job in the area of health after, I am wondering how LSHTM is perceived by those in the field.
