My goal is to work in bulge brackets investment banking post Masters, and I am faced with a big internal struggle. If I got a choice of offers between an Area Studies subject at Oxford vs. a MSc in Finance at Imperial Business School vs Economic History at LSE, which one should I choose? Does the extra street cred from Oxford/LSE outweigh the more practical degree from Imperial? Further, would the global reputation of Oxford outweigh LSE's prime location/slightly more related subject?
Got two M&A internships (one at big 4 corporate finance, one at Dutch MM bank) and one DCM internship on my CV.
Also got excellent results from my undergrad major in Finance (from a non-target) and an academic exchange in another continent.
Any advice on this decision of education would help me a ton.
**PS; I am a poor dude, will have to borrow in order to pursue the Masters, with Imperial being (by far) the most expensive one **
