    Cass has a fantastic reputation amongst City firms, as does LSE. The choice should rest upon whether you feel you would get more out of a hands on course or out of a more academic course.

    City is onle crap in some aspects, after all their law dept is strong, and they award the qualification following the BVC for the ICSL.

    Never really hear much re: Kings as a big business course provider, so couldn't really comment. From working in the City, the main buzz places seem to be Said, Cass and LSE.

    What is the 'official' title of the Kings business masters you are talking about?

    My aunt, who has worked in some amazing jobs in the U.S, Bermuda, BVI and the City (after going to LSE incidentally) tells me that as well as those mentioned - Cranfield and Warwick have amazing reputations for this kind of postgrad course.

    My brother did an undergraduate degree at Cass, it has a very good reputation and excellent links with big firms and is one of Britian's top Business Schools, though if you were thinking of going into Academia afterwards choose LSE.

    5 great picks, of which any one would be fine, with both a national and international reputation, (and without intending to do disservice to all the other fine business schools in the UK) would feature, in my opinion (and in no order whatsoever):

    =Cranfield
    =LBS
    =LSE
    =Cass
    =Said

    It is the name of the very very very rich benefactor who gifted Oxford £20m(?) to build a spanking new business school, which is kitted out to an international standard.

    Nothing, it's Oxford's Business School, as in Port Said.

    From what I can remember, there was much controversy over the whole thing because the said benefactor (applause please :rolleyes: ) is an arms trader and has a bit of a murky past.

    Well, that is a difficult assertion to proove and I wouldn't necessarily go along with it myself. Arms traders, in particular though, seem to be typecasted as the devil incarnate in the media and in general opinion - it's a harsh fact which many people may refuse to accept, but modern society dictates that somebody has to sell guns. Afterall, it is a stong influence in keeping our balance books in the black.

    Something tells me that Bill Gates wasn't faced with anything like the same backlash from Cambridge students that poor old Mr Said was from the Oxford folk. Yet, arguably, these two guys both deserve a slap on the wrists for their activities.

    By doing a MSC in something like Internal Auditing and Management as Cass, will that limit me to just that field, or do employers think people with a msc at a good business school is accepted whatever career field you wnt to go into.

    Same for MSc. Management and the regulation of risk at LSE, is doesnt neccessarily confine you to just risk management will it?
