I applied to both Maths and Eco (LSE) and straight Economics (UCL), and I am really stuck on what to firm?
I think my skills flourish more in mathematics, however, as Economics at uni is said to be very mathematical, and it is argued straight Economics is more desirable to employers, what would seem best to choose as my firm choice?
I have been to both university open days and very much like both institutions, so for me right now it is a matter of which would be better in the long term? LSE has a very strong reputation, as does UCL, but would the combined honours put some employers off? and for what jobs in particular would I be at risk at doing so?
People argue that joint honours are also harder, but as I find maths easier would that not be the case? If anyone studies either course I would love to hear what you have to say also!
If anyone could tell me what they would do in my shoes I'd appreciate it so much.
Also, anyone doing the Maths and Eco course at LSE - how is it? Is there any flexibility in terms of modules? Also, what kind of jobs do you want to go into? I would really like to go to investment banking, would the name of the course vs the uni name help in such a situation?
