    Hello Forum,

    I am considering to apply for both programmes this year at Imperial College. Which is the better programme if you would want to become a

    a) trader
    b) quant

    Is the MSc Finance more respected than the other one? I am under the impression that the MSc RMFE is rather a second choice programme. What percentage of applicants is admitted to the programmes?

    Thanks!

    first class honours Econs & Accs, no gmat, 1 years placement as analyst, 2 internships....i think MSc finance is v competitive (like LSE) i think 1/11 applications will get an offer, the icbs website will say how many apps they got last year and how many ppl they admit...hope that helps

    on the website: 'There are well over 1,000 applications for a class size of about 130 students.'

    dont think it gives a specific number (i cant seem to find anything now-I may have got mixed up with LSE's website info) but you can email admissions ppl they may tell you, but its roughly 1/10 - 1/11 applicants thats get an offer. I think LSE gives specific number of applicants thats applied the prev year.

    For which programme evo? for both? I have had a closer look at the courses and I think that the MSc Finance and RMFE are essentially the same. There are just slight differences in the core courses and the RMFE has less choice in the electives (you can choose from the same courses but there are less options). I don't see how they could justify the different name of the programme. Why do they call it "Risk Management"?
