Cambridge vs Warwick vs LSE, Finance & Economics

Hi all,

Going onto study Econ/finance at postgraduate level. Looking to work in industry after graduation.

I have these offers:
Cambridge - MPhil in finance and economics
LSE - MSc Finance and Economics
Warwick - MSc Finance 25% scholarship
Warwick - MSc finance and economics 50% scholarship

From what I know, Warwick will open less doors than the other two. (Not sure how much more ‘prestige’ the scholarship will provide?)
LSE V Cambridge - does this actually matter for industry at this point? Both are highly regarded in finance. Cambridge brand/network might give it an edge?

For personal enjoyment Cambridge experience is definitely top.

Don’t want to make a mistake here, any advice?

Thank you in advance!
