    Hello everyone! I am new to this forum, and I have a tough choice to make. I thought you guys would have good advice.
    My choice is between:
    -Imperial College London, MSc in Computing Science
    -Columbia, MSc Management Science and Engineering
    I am thinking of either a career in Finance or Tech industry.
    Columbia is really expensive especially since I have no funding, while Imperial has a good reputation and I am not sure Col is worth it?
    What would you guys do?
    Thank you!

    My pleasure

    I can't really tell you much about Columbia's program but my uncle got his Master's in engineering from there and really loved the city life. Although he said sometimes life in Harlem was a little dangerous at night!

    Yes I have heard people complaining about the uptown location. I do not personally mind As an international student it is also a gateway to working in the US and that might be worth on its own.

    Oh I see - how long is the program?

    I don't think it's a bad location tbh - you just have to know when NOT to be out It's right next to Central Park and when I visited a couple years ago I thought it was lovely. It's got oldish style buildings but in the middle of urban Manhattan which is totally awesome. I really love NYC!

    It is a one-year program. Both of them actually are one year.
