Doesn't matter what people think, employers recognise CASS as one of the best in the country.

how do u kno this?
i am unsure bout cass since it is specialised and also it isnt part of University of London so isnt as flexible as for example QM (if i want to move after the first year). Im scared the cass course will be too specialised and boring, and after all that i get a degree from ****y i mean City university :rolleyes: .

CASS is on the target uni list of the top IBs, and has very good links with them via the Careers Service. There's lots of CASS grads in London's top IBs, whereas QMW and RH ones are few and far between. It's perfect for both the CorpFin/M&A and Markets areas of IB, but as you say if you want to change to a different area it's a bit too specialised. Bits of the course may be boring but it's only 3yrs compared to the potential opportunities it'll give you.

put it this way, this is an email from the cass "year out on work placement" office that she sent me today after i asked her what kind of placements have people found for next year.....

"Congratulations on receiving an unconditional offer to study here at Cass.
For students wishing to take the option of a placement year, we offer the
guidance and support needed to ensure that you secure that well sought
after position. We have a very large selection of companies throughout the
city and beyond, who choose to advertise their placement opportunities with
us as they have seen and experienced the quality and calibre of our
students, and are very impressed with the knowledge gained by our students
prior to commencing their placement.


To date, those students who have decided on a placement year have so far
secured placements with the following:-

Ernst & Young
IBM
Lloyds TSB
Goldman Sachs
American Express
BNP Paribas
Barclays Capital
Warner Bros
PA Consultants
ABI Insurance


the list is by no means exhaustive as many companies are still advertising
and interviewing possible candidates."

So there you go, thats not bad is it! lol

yup- im gonna be doing the BSc Banking and International Finance. Im definitely sure that the city doesnt care about city uni's rep, ie it doesnt tarnish Cass Business School. I think even some people forget that Cass is part of City, a bit like LBS being part of the uni of london (well i sumtimes forget that neway lol)

For MBA's at least, I'd say the London Business School. I'm not sure though.
By no shadow of a doubt the liverpool management school is outstanding at all areas of business and finance and has some impressive research people working there as well.

I'd give someone from school/college and then anyone from work experience if you've done some.

LSE, Cass, Cambridge, Oxford, UCL, Imperial, Warwick, Manchester,Nottingham, Bristol etc.

Were the main universities students i saw during my capitacl chances 24hrs investment banking experience. By all means that doesn't mean you have to be from these universities/schools. Just a rough idea for what universities a chunk of the applicants and those successful comes from.
