Hey guys, I have been accepted into Warwick's MSc Finance and am on the waiting list for Imperial's MSc Investment and Wealth Management.

As stated in the title, I would like to get everyone's opinions on which course would be better for career prospects. I am looking at starting in wealth management in the UK or Singapore but am open to other options. My initial impressions are that Imperial would be better than Warwick but MSc Finance could open more doors than MSc Investment and Wealth Management.

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you

Choose the one with the course structure that you prefer most and feel more comfortable with. Both of them are great and you will definitely have an outstanding prospects after finishing the degree

Thanks for your reply Nathan!
I've just found out that the Warwick programme is a CFA partner programme while Imperial's programme only has a CFA partnership planned so that may sway my decision in Warwick's favour.

Ask Imperial to clarify exactly what that means.

Their MSc Finance *is* a CFA partner programme so you can reasonably expect the other course to follow in due course.

Do you want to be a CFA?

Thanks for your reply! I'll email them in the near future to enquire.

Yes, I do eventually want to be a CFA. I was thinking about doing a CFA level 1 in December with during my masters programme (subject to the school's exam timetable etc.). Considering that the CFA has such a brutal passing rate, do you think that gives me a reasonable chance of passing it? I feel that I will be able to cope with attempting the CFA in tandem with my current final year undergraduate Economics workload but would an MSc Finance/Investment course have a massively increased workload compared to final year BSc Economics?

I for one can't understand why the HELL you would choose to go to university in Warwick!

Abysmal location! :doctor:

Warwick Business School because of the CFA accreditation.

This being said, Imperial came up with an excellent name for their MSc. If I had that MSc what I would do is apply to UBS in Switzerland into wealth management roles.
