Hello,

I am searching for a good Msc in Finance. I want to do the Msc while working so I am not sure whether the online Msc at Cass or SOAS is good.

Do you have any advice?
Any recommendations?

Thank you

Are you working in London? Soas doesn't have a reputation in finance and cass does but I'm never sure how well online courses are rated. Are you able to do a part time one you can turn up to? Warwick does a part time one in London, as does lse and cass.

You should look into MSc Finance (Online) at Leiceister University. It is a fairly good university and i chatted with some people about the online masters in finance and they were happy about it. I applied there too and got accepted but decided to go with a different field. If I would've decided on Finance I would've enrolled at Leicester. Also Exeter offers an online FInance course

Peace and blessings,

Apologies to the other poster who said SOAS does NOT have a reputation in finance, but I must, most respectfully, ardently disagree. If we were talking about pure finance, this would be potentially accurate. However, if referring to the Msc at SOAS is in International Finance & Development, part of the Development Studies program -with many roots and branches (into law, for example)-which was ranked #7 is presently ranked #7 in the world having come up from #11 in 2016. So the Msc in International Finance & Development Finance is outstanding in its breadth, reputation, recruitment, etc. So, IF that is the program you are referring to, it is a superb program.

If referring to development I totally agree. But the poster wasn't and was comparing cass to soas and should definitely pick cass in that choice.

You are right. I saw his post, and opened it to read the various comments. The title of the post "Cass Global Finance online MSC or SOAS Msc in Quant Finance" makes it clear he was not talking about developmental finance, but quantitative finance. I think when I read the actual post where the poster wrote: "

I want to do the Msc while working so I am not sure whether the online Msc at Cass or SOAS is good"-I remembered the Class Global Finance portion, didn't remember the quantitative aspect of finance mentioned and presumed the Msc at SOAS would then be the International Finance Development (as a mirror of the Global Finance at Cass). So, going by the original heading, it would seem there are two different interests, the international/global portion at Cass, and then the specific interest in quantitative Finance at SOAS, which as you correctly noted, is not part of the Development Studies program.
