SSE vs RSM for Msc

Hey guys.  Currently have two offers… Msc finance from sse and accounting and financial management from RSM. 

A little background:  Asian,  did my bachelor in Europe as well and had an internship at blackrock for half a year.  More into finance than accounting.  I would like to stay in Europe after graduation and wonder if the 2 year program will help in this case

There is not even a debate. If you were comparing RSM MSc Finance and Investments against SSE MSc Finance it would be different, but you are comparing RSM MSc Accounting against SSE  MSC Finance so clearly you should go to SSE. If you were admitted to SSE MSc Finance programme but not to the RSM one I guess it´s because you miss the deadline.

Exactly,  i know it's stupid to compare.  But from the perspective of landing a job in finance industry (ib pe asset management …whatever)

does msc finance at sse have a better brand name?  Will I get a better shot by doing more internship during thr 2 year program?

Thanks!  Should definitely apply for RSM as they process really quickly.  You can at least have it as a backup option

Well to be clear SSE is solid for finance. But if will be way more expensive for you than RSM. RSM is still a really good university with a much larger alumni network (which is important long term). Hope it helps :)

That's true.  The size of alumni is SSE is really small!  But I heard that the career office there is really helpful
