I would definitely accept the Oxford offer merely for prestige; this alone will HELP you to get into a big IB if that is what you want, although nowhere will guarantee a job.

Blimey, I thought it cost £18k, I suppose it's more for you since you're international. If you've got the money to burn (family?) then I'd say it's worth it, just the prestige of an MSc from Oxford. Do a search on this forum, this new degree's been discussed I think in the Oxbridge forum.

It's interesting to hear you say in India you can only get a crap job with a Bachelors; here you can walk into a top job with one, if you've got good work experience, whereas an MSc and indeed an MBA are pretty much worthless without it. For summer internships I think most deadlines are closed, but PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young may still be looking.
I think when it comes to MSc and MBAs, the fees are same for natives, EUs and overseas. Only BSc. i think there is the difference in fees, although i maybe wrong.
