EDHEC (MiM FE) or Cranfield (MSc Fin & Mgmt)


Hello everyone
I am about to finish my BSc Economics & Management and, with no work experience, I've applied for some masters degrees.

Considering my desire to work in corporate rather than IB or banking, which of these offers would you accept if you were me?

- Cranfield Som: MSc Finance & Management
- EDHEC: MiM Financial Economics

thanks

Where do you want to work, and how fast do you want to accellerate? Looking at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2012 it seems that Cranfield students get much better salaries (80K rather than 59K) but, naturally, they take longer to get into work (81% rather than 89% in work after three months).

Also, how good is your French? The EDHEC class is half French, while the Cranfield class is overwhelmingly international.

I'm definitely more interested in a career in industry rather than in banking or ib. Where? Don't know, I'm willing to travel and I have no problem to move quite often. My French is at basic level but it won't take me long to learn it as i'm Italian, so I wouldn't consider it a big deal.
Thank you very much JK!

Do you mean you want to work in corporate finance, or in some other corporate role? If the former, I would look at the MSc programmes in Corporate Finance at Bocconi, Cass, Durham, EDHEC and Henley.

If you don't want to work in banking or in corporate finance, I would not take an MSc in finance. An MSc in management would be a better training for a non-finance role because of its greater focus on team work skills, project management, presentation skills and the general management toolkit.
