Hey fellow monkeys,

Over the LSE Economic History MSc I found the MSc in Economics and Social History run by Oxford University.

Keeping the line "brand>major" do you guys think that master worth it?
Compared with LSE which one do you choose?
Does anyone have experience with this MSc?

Target IB in London.

Cheers

Honestly I would stay away from such programs despite the brand but if I were to choose, I would definitely go Oxford because of the sheer student clubs/activities in sports and what not which could pamper your resume and candidate profile. Even if you don't succeed getting into IB I think you would have a decent to good shot for consulting jobs.

Thank you for the reply man. I'm putting all my efforts to be part of the financial/accounting major programs but I need to hedge my candidacy with a safe pick. Anyway looking at the majority of CEOs/manager etc. on the City/Street I'm seeing that they study from Philosophy to History at Oxford/Cambridge

You also have to think in what kind of period they graduated and obtained their degree. Back when they were young anyone with a degree pretty much had a certainty in getting a well payed job. Not to mention the contacts. How many of them have a master's degree or an MBA?

This is for a postgraduate mate, I'm doing a financial/accounting bachelor and Id like to do an MBA in US, after my MSc.
Take a look at LSE EH graduate destinations: IB,AM,HF etc

You have been looking for schools and programs since late last year if I remember correctly. You have other posts like this too. FFS just apply and get into one and then ask.

This is my first post about oxford, and yes, I'm going to apply for all of these programs this fall. I want to make a good choice.
Anyway if you don't like my posts you can skip over, no ones forcing you to read/comment

Furthemore, someone in the future could find this post useful
