Quant Master Choices!! LSE FinMath or UCL CompFinance
Hi, I'm currently in trouble of choosing between the two UK quant finance master programmes. LSE Financial Maths, or UCL Computational Finance?
Basically, LSE has a probably better reputation however I'm not sure if the prestige in IB moves to quant as well. Moreover, the LSE course seems to teach theoretical modules in option pricing/stochastic/derivatives and lack in coding. That may narrow the career path to
On the other hand, UCL CF offers Machine learning and Data science courses which from my perspective would be practical and helps me explore quant research/ in bank and HF. Plus, it secures an industry project that guarantees a work experience. The point is that I did my undergraduate at UCL so the master programme doesn't level me up in terms of brand.
Any advice??? I'm aiming a quant based job in HK
