I am currently holding offers for the MSc Econ at LSE and the MPhil Econ at Oxford and Cambridge. Do you have insights into the reputation of said programmes, especially concerning industry (finance/consulting/etc) job prospects?
Obviously Oxford, as a two year deal, is the most expensive. Somehow I feel like LSE is not on par with Oxbridge.
Thanks a lot!
Gonna be honest, while Oxbridge is better for many things, on this I personally think LSE is better. LSE economics for postgrad specifically is arguably the best economics department in the world. LSE grads earn more than from any other uni in the UK.
LSE or Oxford. Cambridge might have been the best place to study Economics 50 years ago, but it has since become insular and stagnated. It is still a fine institution to study but when you have other options like the LSE or Oxford then go for those.
The difference here is that Oxford's more than just an masters degree - as they rightly describe its equivalent to the first two years of the PhD's at the best US colleges but much of that might be overkill as to what you want to do.
