Choosing Warwick or taking a gap.

So, I got an offer for Msc Business and Finance from Warwick. I don't really want a BB role right out of college but any IB roles or Corp Fin role would do. Still, I was wondering, should I take a gap after graduation and prepare for the GRE and apply to LBS and LSE hoping for better prospects or just stick with Warwick

 

If your are not aiming for BB I guess Warwick is enough to land a decent job (+ at some point networking is more important than just your school name). Still able to get an MBA later if you feel like you need it.

Gap is valuable if you take profit of it to gain great internship experience, if you only focus on GMAT it is a clear waste of ressources
