Hello everyone!
I'm an international student from Italy and i wanted to ask you an advice concerning the choice of my masters as it's really driving me crazy. firstly, i have a Bsc in Business Economics, but i want to continue my study in the field of Finance and especially Investment management.

I've recieved an unconditional offer from City University for the MSc in Financial economics and i'm still waiting for a response from Queen Mary for the MSc in Investment and Finance. Additionally i'm waiting for a reply from Cass for the MSc in Management (second choice) ( got rejected for the MSc in Investment management which was my first choice by far ..). i know that regarding Cass, even if it will not be the course that i wanted, it will be a "successful" choice.

Focusing on the other two, what do you suggest me? i've spent hours looking on their websites and TSR, but i'm still undecided. The course provided by QMUL is maybe what i'm looking for (investment and finance) and the course has a good ranking but i'm still thinking on City's course which it seems very good. additionally the Uni is well located and better connected to the City... which one is better ? what are the pros and cons in your opinion?

I'm pretty sure the FE course at city isn't part of cass which is a big deal so check that. With regards to location I wouldn't worry too much as they're both in London anyway, at least for career reasons. city FE course doesn't have an industry reputation to my knowledge. That's not to say it has a bad reputation but I imagine with QNUL msc investment employers will better understand the quality.
