    Hi I would like to get into a Big 4 firm for accounting - specifically audit
    which is better for accounting BSc - Cass Business school or Queen Mary Uni of London.
    Any other London unis I should consider except LSE which I think I will find too difficult and I need to be sure that I will get a 2:1.

    Thanks!

    Cass A&F places well in Big 4, think you might even get some exemptions but check. QMU would also be fine, wouldn't be a huge difference in my opinion.

    Cass in my view. While it's hardly a target, definitely has more people going into front office (albeit a small number in the grand scheme).

    Definitely CASS, seen as a decent semi-target for IB and AM. Though QMUL will give you a better uni experience.
