    Hi,

    I have been made an offer for the Cass MSc Management and Warwick MSc Management for Business Excellence program. After reading the previous posts online, I am of the opinion that Warwick is better than Cass, based on reputation, job opportunities, and school community/student community.

    I am awaiting a decision from LSE and UCL, for their MSc Management programs. I feel confident that they will accept me. However, CASS needs a response within a couple of days and in this time, I might not get a reponse from UCL and LSE. The tuiton costs are fairly similar for all alternatives.

    Imperial put me on their waiting list 08.02.17.

    I would be very glad if someone could share your views and help me make a list from 1-5 (one is the best alternative), and why.

    PS: I am from Norway, and my primary interest is in business development jobs. I am aspiring to get an internship in the UK during or after graduation within retail, operations or strategy.

    Kind regards,
    Hans-Magnus A. O.

    I am also awaiting a decision from Imperial (had my interview 11 days ago) and UCL, for their MSc Management programs. I feel confident that they will accept me. However, CASS needs a response within 8 days and in this time, I might not get a reponse from UCL and Imperial. The tuiton costs are fairly similar for all four alternatives. CASS granted me a academic scholarship of 2000 GBP.

    I would be very glad if you could share your views and help me make a list from 1-4 (one is the best alternative), and why.

    It is unfair of Cass to push you into a decision. You could get your own back by accepting them, then rejecting them if you get another offer which you prefer.

    Accepting Cass is not binding.

    Not for Management. All three are on a par.

    "jneill", are you sure about this? They are stating that I would have to pay a 2000 GBP deposit fee, which I won't get refunded if I decide to reject my offer.

    It seems Imperial (invoiced 5 days after accepting offer) and Warwick (payable within 4 weeks) do similar.

    Must be a nasty business school trick...

    Update: Imperial just put me on their MSc Management waiting list. Do you guys know anything about the chances of getting in, being on this list?

    I will turn down CASS while waiting for LSE and UCL.

    No, sorry. Maybe ask in the Postgrads forum. This particular forum is mostly used by undergrad applicants.

    Cass has the advantage of being located in London and Imperial is a target as well.

    Imperial and possibly even UCL will be better choices. But Warwick has a good business school and location has little advantage since banks visit and host networking events in Warwick anyway. Besides, it's only an hours train journey from London.

    Imo Cass is a better choice than UCL but slightly worst than Imperial and LSE.

    True Warwick has a business school that world renowned.

    Well UCL is a target whereas Cass is a semi target. Perhaps the dept is better but reputation matters for employment. But yeah I get where you're coming from.

    Isn't that just for Investment Banking though? I mean Cass definitely has a better department in management compared to UCL in the business realm. It all depends on international connections. People know about Cass around the globe (I am from Asia which is a reputation driven place, they place Cass higher than UCL's business school for sure).
