MSc Finance and Private Equity LSE

Hey WSO,

As an undergrad still undecided between consulting vs banking, is the LSE masters in finance and private equity a good option?

I feel the MSc Management is weighted towards consulting and MSc Finance clearly for finance jobs.

Would MSc Finance and Provate Equity be a good option to keep both doors open?

It's a great course but points heavily towards finance and IB. I have friends doing the MSc Management and taking a lot of finance modules to steer it towards IB (and they've got internships last summer and offers this year) so if you're undecided remember you can shift around with the Management MSc and not so much with the Finance and PE one.

Thanks for the advice! Do you think the MSc management will have any impact on an MBA application though?
