KCL Business school MSc??

Hi everyone, Right now I'm studying BSc Economics at CITY, UoL (2nd).
I'm thinking of doing a Master's programme at KCL for ESG Management in 2025. With going into a career in banking, and in the long term working for organisations such as IMF/World Bank/UN ect.

Does anyone have any advice for me looking into to this?

The course is 19k which is a bit, so I'm stuck on exactly how I am going to fund this.

Applying for the Kings Scholarship Fund, was it competitive, the process.

About the course itself; was it fun, worth it?

Career Prospectives.

Is the admin and uni organisation skills really that bad...

is Kings Business School supportive?


Another reason I want to do the master's is honestly just to postpone adulthood, I don't feel like I'm ready to be a graduate. I did want to stay on at my university and do the MSc Sustainable Management and Finance with Bayes Business School but that's 30k 😬. And the other one was with Imperial MSc Climate Change, Management & Finance but that's 37k 🫥. So that's why I'm going for Kings and also the modules are more suited for me.

Thank you :smile:

Don't apply to kings. Go elsewhere .
Their administration and application portal is horrendous.

They don't reply to queries, have no email to reach out to. You have to ask any question via portal which is mostly left unread and their reference requests don't go through to the referee. They don't fix it and later on reject your application stating competitive places.

I could say MSc in Kings Business School is a very good choice if you are looking for the qualified business program. Their lecturer and facilities are super (libraries, study space, mental health, gym). There are also many legit external speakers who come to the uni. Their target jobs help your chance to apply the job before or after graduate. I would love to say it is worthed yet competitive. I am still doing postgraduate in Accounting & Finance there.

Thanks for your honestly. This is an opinion that I hear a lot tbf, which makes me feel quite unsure:/

Thanks for the reassurance! Really good to hear you are enjoying your time, would you say with the workload you are able to balance a social life aswell? And do you know any extra ways of helping funding the programme?
