Hi!

I have received conditional acceptances from Aston, Strathclyde & Kent for their MSc. courses in Investment and Finance. While I await the results of my IELTS, I am in currently in the process of trying to make the final decision on which offer to accept for the course starting in September 2022.

In terms of the courses itself, I had shortlisted courses that have an affiliation with the CFA, since that is a definite career pathway that I would want to explore further. In my opinion, the modules at Stratchclyde lack in terms of technology and coding oriented modules like Python / R for Finance which both Kent & Aston offer.

In terms of location, I prefer Aston & Strathclyde over Kent, primarily because they are located in larger cities (Birmingham, Glasgow respectively) and will provide better access to Part Time and eventually Full Time work. Aston may score better considering proximity to London.

In terms of Business School Reputation, my readings suggest that Strathclyde is the most recognised, followed by Aston & then Kent. I am given to believe that Strath and Aston have equally strong connections to companies.

My purpose is to build a career in Investment Management post graduation.

Any tips and points to consider that can help me to take a final decision over the next few weeks.

Thanks in advance!
