Hello, I currently need to decide from a few offers I have received during the last few months. I have offers in the following courses and universities:
MSc International Accounting and Finance - Cass Business School
MSc Finance (Asset Pricing) - King's College London
MSc Finance - Lancaster
MSc Finance - Loughborough
MSc Investment Management - Exeter
I intend to pursue a career in IB, but considering none of these are proper target unis, I am unsure if it would be worth doing the IA&F course at Cass to elevate my CV or take on a pure MSc in Finance somewhere like Lancaster which also provides great prospects or somewhere with good overall reputation like KCL but with an average business school. Thanks for your help in advance.

I would go for King's, followed by Cass. Lancaster I would rank slightly lower than Cass. That course at Cass seems to be almost pure accounting which I personally can't stand though.

Did you apply to Imperial, LSE, Warwick?

If I was in your position I would definitely go with Cass.
