    Yo, wannabe bankers.

    I have received my firm choice being Warwick University. I have also received 2 other offers, which I am hoping to put for insurance. These offers are:
    BA Economics and Finance (BA is a concern) - Manchester University
    BSc Industrial Economics - Nottingham University

    Exactly the same grade entry requirements.

    What would you choose between those two universities?

    Also I am likely to receive an offer for the IMB degree at UCL. It is heavily tailored towards IT, and its AAB, should I still insure the econ degree? but my main concern is between notts and manny

    peace out

    doing an economics degree is not at all necessary to become a banker, so if you'd rather do IMB at UCL - go for it.. but I would choose Nottingham over Manchester, the campus is better, a more respectable uni (imo) and ayeee industrial economics is a sick course - heard great things about it (notts industrial econ was my firm choice but didnt get in)

    anyways both are semi targets and great unis so won't matter much between them so its up to you, thats just my opinion^

    Course wise:
    Notts > Mancs > UCL

    Brand name wise:
    UCL > Notts > Mancs

    Is it Econ at Warwick?

    If you dont mind doing IMB, assuming you get the offer there, I would make IMB at UCL your insurance. That way you know you'll still have a place at a target uni. For IB, uni prestige is more important than the course you do.

    The gap between the numbers the target unis get in (Warw, UCL) and the semi-targets (Manc, Notts) is quite large.

    Between Notts and Manc, Notts is better overall for IB.
