    Hey guys!

    I am an international student (EU) currently holding 2 offers:
    - pure Economics from Warwick uni
    - Economics with Management from Durham uni
    I couldn't find a topic about a mix of Economics/Management, so decided to start a new one, hoping you could help me.
    I am wondering which of the both offers to firm, I am switching my opinion every second day now... Yes, I have seen both unis, and spoken to staff, which has not made the decision any easier, though.
    My main criteria are
    - making friends fast
    - how modern is the course (stuff like big data, AI incorporated in the course content)
    - staff support
    - employability, especially in the management consulting area
    (- student life)

    Last thing in brackets, as though it is important, I expect it to be reasonably well at both unis. Living cost would be another factor to consider, though. Please, bear in mind that I am a EU-student, not a British one

    Thanks for your help!

    I see a lot more Warwick grads than Durham grads in consulting/banking. A warning though - If you are looking for big data/AI, then you've chosen the wrong subject to read at uni.

    Just my two cents.

    Warwick. And, the real truth is, it's not even close. That said, Durham is great on its own. It's just that Warwick is very well-regarded and its graduates are well favoured by the top employers.

    I would say Durham is more respected myself
