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.

The 30k will be in pounds.

The 30k will be in pounds.

Its 19k on average in pounds which at todays exchange rate is 30k in dollars.

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.
