LSE MSC in Risk and Finance, a good program to enter sales and trading?

Hi,

I'm wondering if LSE's MSC in Risk and Finance program would be a good program to get a job in an IB as a trader. I have read mixed reviews about the program, some way it doesn't focus on finance enough (compared to the MSc in Finance) and that most graduates get hired for risk management.

Could someone please shed light on this program and offer advice if i should accept my offer at LSE when my goal is to work in an IB as a trader.
