I am currently a final year undergrad from a Dutch University (thus not bad however also not a target by any means), got excellent study results and consequently an offer from LSE in their Economic History Msc programme. I wasn't able to do internships so far (I did volunteer in Africa in a summer however) and thus lack this probably key aspect.
Would accepting the Economic History master @ LSE be worth it if I want to break into London/Dutch/Asian banking? My undergrad study is in business with a major in finance and additional 5-month finance education through my semester abroad at HKUST, a target uni in Asia but likely unknown elsewhere.
Alternatively, I can pursue a Master in Finance & Investments at RSM in Rotterdam. This would cost me 2k and I have already been 'selected' for this.
I heartily thank anybody for their opinions. I feel honoured by LSE'soffer but very unsure if I should take it - I'd have to go into debt (although cheap debt through British and Dutch government loans) but if it does help me out I will have no problem doing so.
