Cass London Msc Investment Management vs Msc Corporate Finance


I hold an offer for the Msc in Corporate Finance (CF) by Cass business school. Upon my request, the school has confirmed that I might be considered for the Msc in Investment Management (IM) alternatively.

I choose CF because I am interested in M&A, valuation and financial modelling. However, the Risk Management area fascinate it me also even though I am not sure if it is too quantitative compared to normal CF. My doubt was originated also by the fact that some people consider the Msc in IM to be more recognizable in general and by employers.

I'd love to work in IB or large financial advisory firms and I am sure that an Msc in IM would not prevent me from doing so (even though CF seems to be more appropriate for such jobs). On the contrary, I believe that if the Msc in IM is indeed more reputable, I would stand more chances to get the jobs I am seeking.

As you might see from my statement, I am a bit confused. I am writing here to seek pieces of advise and general opinions from you. Beside confusion, I hope I have been clear enough :)

Hi Giovanni,

The best way to look at this is to do a Linkedin search and see where people who did both courses have gone. Secondly, on each course website there should be a 'career' website showing where people from each course went. Final resort, contact the career department at CASS and see what they say depending on your career desires.

Ps. non usare il tuo nome vero su WSO ;)

G, Thanks for the tips! I looked up a bit on Linkedin but I am not finding it very useful because I can only view one person per time. Is there any better way of searching? I can see where the all faculty alumni went working but I cannot filter it by course, is there any way to do so?
I looked up on their website and it is pretty useful, I wrote also here to look for additional views:)

PS. Grazie mille l'ho cambiato!
