Hello everyone!
University of Edinburgh doesn't offer any straight Finance course, that's why I'm stuck between "Economics with Finance" and "Business and Finance". I'd really want to study at Edinburgh, because of its worldwide reputation and the career opportunities offered.

- Economics with Finance has 73% of the modules dealing with Economics, and 27% with Finance.
- The dissertation must be an Economics Honours Dissertation.

- Business and Finance has 54% of the modules dealing with Business, 8% with Accounting and 38% with Finance.
- The dissertation must be a Management Honours Dissertation (Notes: The Management Honours Dissertation must be on a research topic in the field of Finance)

My other choices are Finance (Stirling), Economics and Finance (Aberdeen) Finance (Strathclyde), Financial Economics (St Andrews). I'm applying in Scotland due to free tuition, I'm an International EU student.

I'd like to know what do you think will change in my graduate career opportunities or in my being hired possibilites due to the difference between a joint (Business and Finance) or a major/minor (Economics with Finance)?

I heard that Business degress are often undervaluated due to the common think that they're pretty vocational. But among business modules there are
- Business Research Methods I: Introduction to Data Analysis
- Business Research Methods II: Introduction to Data Analysis
- Mathematical Programming in Advanced Analytics
- Decision Analytics

So why do people are most likely to prefer "Economics" (which is over any doubt quant-based) instead of "Business" degrees?

In my case it was only because I found out I could afford Bocconi tuition. If you can afford the extra costs of Bocconi and your goal is finance, Bocconi >>> Edinburgh in terms of placement and 3 yrs vs. 4 yrs.
