Difference in cost between MIT Masters and LSE

I'm looking at MS in finance programs. Someone on this forum suggested MIT. If I am correct the Masters programs at LSE cost approximately 30k vs 70k for the MIT degree? Is this correct? Seems like too big of a disparity.

Total costs are 96K but that factors in food, housing, etc. 70K tuition as you mentioned previously.

I am seeing 23K in pounds, but I might be missing something. You are going to have to add to that figure all the misc. fees and costs associated with living overseas for 1 year.

LSE is a more established program, been around longer, etc.

MIT -- This is the 1st year I believe that the MFin program is open to non MIT undergrads.

If you are looking at these schools then you should add Princeton to your list.
