I have applied to both Warwick MMORSE and Economics (and straight econ at lse + ucl, e+m at oxford) and I have been thinking about which I would prefer and would benefit me the most in the long run (providing I get offers of course).

Career wise I am currently thinking of going into ib or becoming an actuary and was wondering which would be better for the two careers. I am aware that for IB the degree has less importance compared to the university and since all of my universities are targets I will be in a good position provided I get an offer from one of them. Regarding an actuary from what I understand I would be able to go into the career with either degrees but due to potential exemptions it may make my life a lot easier doing MMORSE.

If I was set on these two careers I would lean towards MMORSE as I also think I would enjoy the course more due to the heavy mathematical content however I also know that there are many jobs I have no clue about that in a few years may appeal to me so my main question is:

What careers would I be shut off too/make considerably harder to get into by choosing MMORSE over Econ or vice versa?

Any insight would be appreciated.

oh cool, we applied to similar uni's, what're your predicted grades if you don't mind me asking? x
i'd always thought that for IB, mathematical degrees like MORSE would be advantageous? so yeah i agree w/ you that if you're set on those two careers, you should lean towards MORSE (why did you apply to only one uni for it though haha x)
i feel like taking MORSE over Economics would make it harder for you to go into consultancy/ become an Economist, but then again people who delve into those jobs usually get a Masters so really no biggie what you do at Undergrad as long as it's at a target uni, like you said
