Is Cass/Bayes BSc Finance good for investment banking?

I'm looking to go into IB/ finance in general and I would like to know if this is a good school for IB. Is it better than York, Sheffield and Lancaster? I'd appreciate your comments.

Anyone?
chill, normally takes around a day for a few useful answers
Cass does alright in IB recruiting for some reason, easily better than the other unis you mentioned.
cass/bayes is @ the backend of the semi-targets vs. non-targets you mentioned

Bayes (formerly known as Cass) is one of the top business schools in the UK. This is backed by multiple ranking criteria which can be found here nicely summarized:

The rest is a matter of personal choice.

LSE, UCL and ICL are targets for IB. KCL is a semi-target. I'm applying outside of London.

I am applying to LSE, UCL, ICL and KCL already but I still can apply to one more, and I would like to be in London, that is why I thought of Bayes/Cass. Any other good one in London I could think about?

Bayes should be fine. Can also look at QMUL (a non-target with decent placement). I would definitely consider going outside of London instead though. Bath, Durham, Nottingham, Warwick all have great A+F courses.

Finance!
For Finance related subjects based in London good choices are London Business School (LBS), London School of Economics (LSE), University College London (UCL), Imperial College London (IC) and City, University of London (Bayes Business School).

All these institutions are colleges of the university of London (UoL) except Imperial College London which left the UoL in 2007.

All of these institutions enjoy a very good reputation and perform highly on research and entry criteria rankings.

LBS is to do with graduates. LSE, UCL and Warwick are being considered by the applicant. City is good but more so at the graduate level. They are trying to go into banking.

Imperial doesn’t do finance undergrad. It’s a STEM school
