WHU(MiF) vs IE ( MiF) vs Warwick ( MSc Fin) vs Cass ( MSc Fin) vs UCL

Hi, So I am torn between choosing the best Masters in Finance program among these  - WHU vs IE  vs Warwick  vs Cass vs UCL 

I am seeking to break into BB IB/ PE in London or Frankfurt.

Also Is it true that WHU has better representation in the BB/ EB banks in London than Cass/ Warwick?

As far as a general "ranking" of the courses mentioned goes, the order is: IE>Warwick>UCL>CASS>WHU. For London your best bets are Warwick or IE (UCL is a big name too, but not well known for their MFin). Tricky thing is that WHU is one of the best universities in the DACH region and may be a top choice for IB in Frankfurt. For London, WHU is probably Tier 3. I would think a bit more about where you want to work and choose based on that.

Well I looked through linkedin, and I saw a better representation of WHU students in the IBs and PE in London than IE, UCL and Cass.

But would you say WHU would be my best bet out of Non-UK universities after Bocconi, and HEC?
