I am currently a third-year undergraduate student in Commerce. I am extremely passionate about Shipping and Physical Commodities. I had applied to Cass's MSc Shipping, Trade, and Finance and have got an acceptance letter. However, I am also interested in History and Economics. I had applied to MSc International Political Economy and MSc Economic History at LSE. I got rejected for MSc IPE and got an acceptance letter for MSc Economic History. I love Shipping, I fell in love with it right after reading lofty tales of Onassis, Niarchos, and Naess but it is an extremely closed and secretive

Hey everyone! Long time lurker here but first time posting, this forum has been a huge help to me in the past and now I have an important decision to make which I've gone back and forth on so I'm hoping someone has some decent advice. Been accepted on the Msc Corporate Finance programme at Cass Business School and the Msc Accounting, Strategy and Control programme at Copenhagen Business School. One of the things that's really confusing to me is how Brexit would affect my chances of attaining a work permit in the UK if I choose to study at CBS. I'm an EU student which means I get pre-settled

Ok since people are always curious as to why I am such a fan of Cass...here you go! A quick interview I did a while back. FYI I am not saying other european business schools aren't better than Cass... I'm just saying Cass deserves to be recognized as one of the leading business schools, with a high potential going forwards! Where did you hear about Cass? I spoke to many friends and industry contacts to gain insight into the best programmes available in International Finance. Cass was consistantly recommended over and over, so it seemed like a great fit for what I was looking for in my academic studies. I also had a personal connection with Cass since my father completed his Masters here in 1977! Why did you choose to study at Cass?

Hi everyone, If your goal was to work in AM preferably in London, and maybe in US or Canada later, which option would you choose? High GPA from a top Nordic uni, 1 internship in commercial banking, 1 year student job in AM trade support role. IE Business School - Masters in Finance (50% scholarship) Cass Business School - Investment Management MSc (no scholarship) Imperial College Business School - Investment & Wealth Management MSc (probably no scholarship) Would need a loan for the tuition, whichever school I choose. Thanks

Hi All, I am seeking an advice as i am really struggling which university should I choose. I am deciding between these two: Cass Business School - Msc corporate finance Rotterdam SChool of Management - Msc Finance & Investments In future i would like to work for financial advisory firm in London. Clearly, Cass has "London advantage" over RSM. On the other hand, programme in RSM costs 1,800 euro, compared to 24,000 pound for Cass' programme. My questions are: Are companies from London (consulting, fin. advisory, IB) hiring at RSM? Is "London advantage" worth paying 24,000 pounds? Which uni has stronger name (in consulting/IB, in london and globally)? I found few discussion about that, but i have still very mixed feelings.

I recently was accepted into the ESCP Business School Masters in Real Estate (currently ranked #3 in the world by QS) and Cass Business School's Master in Real Estate Investment. My long term goal is to work for a global REPE firm in London, but am having a tough time deciding which is the better choice. ESCP is ranked much higher in the global rankings, and the program itself is spread between Madrid and London. Although Cass doesn't seem to rank very highly, it has an incredibly impressive alumni presence in London. Any ideas on which would lead to better opportunities? Thanks!

Hi, I've been accepted to MSc Management programs at: - LSE - Imperial - Cass I need some help deciding which to choose! Basically, I want to know which program employers in the business world, broadly defined, would view as "the best." I am just about to finish my undergrad degree in the US, so I am not greatly familiar with the reputations of UK business schools. Obviously, I know that LSE is the school with the biggest/ best "brand-name" - but all three programs are pretty similarly ranked, according to the FT, so how big a consideration should I put on the school's overall rep...? I would really appreciate some advice from anyone familiar with these schools or MSc Management programs in general or, ideally, both! Some extra info:

Hello, I've been admitted by Cass for Full-time MBA. I've been reading topics here about Cass, it seems to have many negative remarks, which made me quite confused to go or not. Some of my friends told me that it is famous in banking and finance and will be easy to get an IB/EQ job in London. And in many of the topic, it has been said not to be a target school. In FT MBA rankings, it has higher post salary than IB/WARWICK? Is that true? Could you please tell me more about Cass pls? I'm working in data analysis and computer EE for 4 years in Paris. I'm just seeking for an affordable MBA to

I have received offers for MSc corporate finance from Cass and MSc Finance and Management from Cranfield. I've read plenty of posts, and all seem to juggle between which of these 2 are better. Who can give a proper break down and distinction between these two? A little bit of background on me: I've completed my undergrad and post-grad honours in Finance & Management and Financial Accounting. I'm also a registered Chartered Accountant with 4 years work experience and I'm currently a senior AVP at a UK Investment Bank. I am however interested in corporate finance (M&A, PE, VC, Corporate deals).

Hello, I am considering between Cranfield MSc Finance & Management and Cass MSc corporate finance. I'd like to ask, how is the reputation of the schools in the industry and how good are these degrees for future career? I have seen FT 2016 and 2015 rankings which shows Cranfield ranked higher than Cass for careers and percentage employed, but Cass seems to be far more famous. I did a science degree for undergraduate in the UK. Thank you.
