Is it worth it for an international student?
How good is the Master's in corporate finance at QMUL and Durham?
Depends on your goals.
I would like to aim for corporate finance roles at any of the Fortune 500s, preferably in the UK. Do you think these programs would do well in terms of international mobility? What are the other reputed corp fin msc programs out there?
The Fortune 500 is composed of US firms, so not all of them will have corporate finance functions in the UK.
What do you think about using such degrees to get equity research analyst/ corporate finance analyst level roles? Also, how good are these two schools and are there any better providers in the UK for specialised corporate finance master's?
These are very different schools. Durham is a triple-crown business school, and one of the top ten in the FT MiF ranking: https://rankings.ft.com/rankings/2842 QMUL has none of the three crown accreditations, and is unranked.
If you want to work in corporate finance, I don't see much benefit in restricting yourself to specialised degrees named corporate finance when most general MiF degrees have the flexibility to take the same courses and access the same internships and employers. Focus on the best schools for your goals. There are the obvious candidates: major London schools like City, Imperial, and LBS, and prestiegous universities in the provinces like Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter. However, even the smaller schools in the FT ranking can have good outcomes. For equity research, the LSE, Imperial, City, LBS and Oxford are the go-to school.
