    LSE=Warwick (they are both banking breeding grounds) > Bath

    But really, they'll all serve the purpose of getting you into IB - granted, of course, you build up the right profile. It's all well and good choosing a target uni but, if you don't have the personality/mindset, or CV for banking you will get rejected. So choose where you'd rather live for 3-4 years and what opportunities you might have re:societies, leadership involvement, year abroads, etc.

    Yes, but only marginally. I do believe Warwick had the most finance career events last year too.

    In recent years, they've been about on par with numbers breaking into the industry. In terms of banks coming on campus for networking events, presentations etc, I believe Warwick had the highest number of said events last year out of all the targets so clearly, there's a pretty strong interest from employers. Plus, go to LSE or Warwick and you'll be bombarded with a general push into finance careers, whereas at Oxbridge/UCL/Imperial it's not the main career of interest.

    But to be fairly honest, there really isn't much of a distinction (for banking puposes, general rep might vary) between the target unis.

    For a management course though, it probably would be main point of interest? I'm also a sucker for London, love this place. Both obviously top notch choices

    Nope, because the course isn't really a relevant factor. You could do History of Art or Classics as much as you could do Economics or Management, neither will be applied to what actually happens in an IB. The banks will teach all new starts from scratch for like 2-3 months before shipping them off into their respective divisions.

    The London argument is fair enough for the social side of things, otherwise it's really a toss up.
