    Hi! I've wanted to ask numerous questions regarding the Cass 'banking and international finance course'?
    I've only heard good things and think that to get a job in investment banking, it is an advantageous place to go ahead of some other universities.

    Do you guys think Cass is a good uni in terms of future employment and the course itself?

    As far as I'm aware of, Cass was known in the city for it's 'part-time' courses. To be honest, if you're looking at banks like GS, JPM, MS, CS, Citi, Barcap then Cass isn't the best place to study unless you're thinking of working in the middle / back office.

    They're pretty much the same level but if I had to choose one, I'd choose Cass. Cass has a slight edge.

    CASS is very well regarded in the finance field, and is a semi-target uni for IB (there are some recent graduates from CASS in this website who work in IB, so check out the IB sub forum). You can check their graduate destination data, many do end up in big well known firms.

    I'm not sure which universities require AAB but universities like UCL, Warwick, St Andrews would be a better choice. UCL's management course has a pretty low entry requirement as far as I'm aware of but not sure if it's an AAB so you might want to check it.

    It's stupid to go to an investment bank for a middle / back office role to be honest. Working as an IB analyst and working as a IT support is hella different in terms of pay and promotion.
