MSc Management: LSE v. Imperial v. Cass
I've been accepted to MSc Management programs at:
I need some help deciding which to choose! Basically, I want to know which program employers in the business world, broadly defined, would view as "the best." I am just about to finish my undergrad degree in the US, so I am not greatly familiar with the reputations of UK business schools. Obviously, I know that LSE is the school with the biggest/ best "brand-name" - but all three programs are pretty similarly ranked, according to the FT, so how big a consideration should I put on the school's overall rep...? I would really appreciate some advice from anyone familiar with these schools or MSc Management programs in general or, ideally, both!
Some extra info:
Regarding careers, I am not one hundred percent sure yet where I want to end up. Maybe management consultancy.
Also: financial considerations are a concern. Cass has already promised me a small scholarship. This makes Imperial look quite a bit more expensive, so I would need a pretty good reason to pick Imperial over Cass. And since LSE is a two-year program, it is basically twice the price of Imperial, so I would need a VERY good reason to choose LSE.
One more thing, conditions of my offers: Cass requires that I graduate with a 3.2 GPA, LSE requires a 3.5 - I'm assuming this means LSE is more selective... Is it best to go with the most selective school that accepted me?
Any thoughts are welcome, I want to make sure I make the right decision!
