What are you going to study? it depends...
Hi guys. Hope you are keeping well! Just a quick one for you here...
I’ve received offers from Cranfield, Cass, Henley Business School in Reading and Smurfit in Dublin. I’m waiting to hear back from Exeter, Warwick and Durham.
I’m looking for your opinion on which uni and course would be best for getting a job in Finance in London.
Cranfield - MSc Finance and Mngt
Cass - MSc Corporate Finance
Smurfit - MSc Aviation Finance
Henley - MSc Corporate Finance

And the three I haven’t heard back from are:
Exeter - MSc Finance and Investment
Warwick - MSc Finance
Durham - MSc Finance (Corporate and International Finance)

I’m also thinking of applying the MSc Investment and Wealth Management in Imperial

Out of the offers I already have, what do you think I should go for? And if I were to get offers from Warwick, Exeter or Durham, what would you go for?
Has anyone else applied to any of these courses?
FYI my undergrad is BSc Finance.

Thanks!

Thanks for your response Nick. I really like the look of the finance and management course in Cranfield.
What sort of jobs do most of the class end up in? Do you see many going into IB and portfolio management?
Thanks

You've indicated your interest in IB, so naturally Warwick and Imperial (if you apply) will help you the most. Cass is also good but produces less IB grads than the aforementioned. The rest of your choices are a bit pointless, you shouldn't be wasting money on an MSc in the hope it'll make you a strong IB candidate unless it's a target in my opinion because you're making it much harder on yourself.

If you're doing it because you're interested in the academic subject then they're all great quality universities.

Today I received an offer at Cass for MSC Corporate Finance. (I have until the 30th to accept).

You mentioned you hold an offer, when does it expires?

BTW, I applied to IWM at imperial and MSC Finance at Warwick 5 weeks ago and still haven't heard from them. With Cass is a different story... I decided to apply last saturday and today I received an offer (weird right?). So hurry with Imperial as if you can see in other threads... they are taking up to 9-10 weeks to hang out offers!

Also, if you decide to go to Cass, we might go in together haha

Congrats on the offer from Cass. I was the same, I heard back very quickly. My offer expires on the 27th of March so it’s possible that I won’t have heard back from Warwick or Imperial before then, definitely not Imperial anyway. I only applied to Imperial today.
Let me know how you get on with the others anyway. Ye we could!

Hi, I've had a conditional offer from Cranfield for MSc Management and am waiting to hear from Warwick. Have already been interviewed by join a school in France and few german business schools. With this information I present to you the idea that you(thread starter) and I are in the same boat. N.B: I don't live in London, so I cannot provide firsthand practical knowledge. But I've had discussions with alumni, professors and researched deeply into the subjects. Priority should be: 1. Imperial 2. Wawrick 3. Cass 4. Cranfield 5. Smurfit ... and the rest follow. Why? Imperial has great reputation. Certainly, a tad bit higher than Warwick. But. you must understand that Imperial and Warwick are almost the same. Warwick is growing at a very fast rate, and it's very proactive. The same applies for University life as well. And it's not a whole lot away from London. So you'll always find something going good or bad for either universities. Cass is great. Comes right after WBS and Imperial on any rankings. Has a good organised course. Sadly, does not equate to the kind of rich environment, access to job market and is honestly a little cramped and unorganised( I am talking about the campus) Cranfield is in the middle of nowhere. Yet, if that gels with you, then you have a university that offers a very different experience from other institutes. While, in Warwick, Imperial and Cass( well actually all of them); their USP is all management subjects and economics. Cranfield will give you a taste of energy management, defence expenditure management( i.e, if you go around learning as its the best in Europe for energy management and defence studies, it's not a subject in your module), is a smaller cohort. Its basically a very different experience, you'll be learning a different things from your peers. Things you may not experience at other schools. So I would consider that as a strong factor for choosing the school, This school has good market reach, but mostly lower A and higher B level companies come here. Ireland, however can be the game changer. With Brexit finally happening in full effect post 31st dec 2020, several companies have shifted their HQs to Ireland from London. The business may indeed be going west, so watch out for that. UCD is a good school. In my personal opinion, you either choose Imperial or Warwick. Or you research on your short term and long term goals and if they align with Ireland, then ride that opportunity train. Brexit is indeed a golden ticket waiting to be cashed in. Just ensure you're ahead in standing in line. May I also recommend studying/working in Germany (even if for a few years). It will be a much more fulfilling experience academically and professionally.Cheers
