for IB/Consulting (in the UK!) the degree does not really matter, what matters more is the brand name of the uni - therefore I would go with either the Oxford/LSE programme

I'm not sure, on the LSE website they state that many graduates of the program I listed tend go to banking/consulting. So then in your perspective, I should focus on the programs in economics/management?

Thing is I also am doing my undergrad in economics, and hence maybe that will be relevant.

Would also say this is true for the US. Many people in America have great respect for LSE & Oxford. No one knows Erasmus and some of the other "1st tier" programs you mentioned.

From a purely name perspective, LSE/Ox are best to get into consulting/finance, but I can see that their MSc courses aren't what you want; as an earlier comment said, you'd want something related to the industry. Therefore I'd say Warwick/ICL Econ/UCL management, as Warwick have a large postgrad focus especially in Economics/Business School, and ICL/UCL have the benefit of being in London. If I had to pick one I'd probably be leaning toward ICL Econ/Strategy for Business, the course sounds better + you're in London. Best of luck!
