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

Hi all, I'll be graduating from a decent UK uni this year with a BSc in Mathematics. I've been given 3 conditional offers for: Cambridge MASt Applied Mathematics, Imperial College London MSc Mathematics and Finance, LSE MSc Financial Mathematics. My ambition is to become a quant, and I realise that the two financial mathematics degrees are obviously designed for people wanting to go into quant etc., but they're both about 3 times the price of the Cambridge course, and realistically I'd enjoy the Cambridge experience a lot more (course and city). Any advice as to which of these I should go for

Hello, I am centralamerican (Honduran) with double major in Industrial Engineering and Finances and an associate degree in Business Administration.

For my sophomore summer, would going abroad for the LSE's finance classes look good on my resume? I see this as more of a last-resort option if I don't get an internship related to finance, but I'm not banking on it because I'm not a diversity candidate and I probably don't have the experience to compete with current juniors. I've been looking at smaller boutiques as well but I don't want to bank on that either. For context, I studied abroad last summer in France (taking french classes), so other than clubs and coursework my resume is lacking in terms of experience in finance.
