LBS MFA(Masters in financial analysis) or LSE Msc Finance

Hi all, i have applied for both the LBS and LSE courses and would appreciate any feedback or advice on which course would be better. I have recently graduated from university majoring in Finance and Economics and am looking to work in the asset or portfolio management industry in the future. Many thanks to everyone.

The LBS program is relatively new and doesn't have the track record that LSE has. IMO, the LSE MSc program would be the safer bet. Both have a great brand and reputation in London. I'd make the decision based on cost and alumni base in your desired field.

I would go for LSE if you get into their master of finance. I would take the MFA over anything else at LSE though. The first class of the MFA looks amazing and the MiM has done great with Banks in London in the last couple of years.

Cant go wrong with either.

IF that matters, your year at LBS will be a lot better. Less hours spend studying and more hours spent travelling and partying. (Goes the other way around for educational advancement I guess)

Is it only me or does the degree name 'Masters in Financial Analysis' sound a bit stupid to you guys as well?

Go for LSE! Although I don't understand your post since most offers haven't even come out yet. Do you have an offer or are you just applying? Why create this thread if you don't have an offer from these places yet?
