MBA reputation uk


Manara2
Hi everyone

I have offers for a full time mba from CASS, Imperial and MBS and have to make a decision soon. All have a good course structure but I'm interested to know more about the market perception of these schools/programs in the U.K. I plan to work in the U.K. In the financial services sector post mba and want to know how those programs are viewed by recruiters.

I'm interested to do the program in London so the decision is likely between CASS or imperial.

Would really appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks!

Lots of insight if you search the board. Cass is a obvious choice for finance.

Kindly tell Cass repute among employers in London for international students. I am more than happy to network to find jobs but have heard mixed reviews about Cass. Could somebody shed some light on this. I want to switch career into finance in companies such as EY PWC etc

There are mixed reviews about everything. The Financial Times ranks the 100 best MBAs for finance: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/top-mbas-for-finance-2018 Six are in the UK, including Cass (which is ranked 2nd in the UK, and 22nd overall). In terms of the percentage of students going into finance, it is also second in the UK. On both those key metrics, it is better than any other UK MBA, other than LBS.

To be honest, I am bit unsure how much research you can have done if this is not already obvious to you. The unique location of Cass in the City, the only top UK MBA in the banking district, means that it has been funnelling MBAs into finance for decades. The EMBA network is especially potent.

I take advantage of this for a question, I know it's OT but I'll avoid creating a new one!
What's your thought about Cass MSc in Global Finance (online)?

Yes duncan I know about cass location as have visited london before and was in the vicinity where cass is. I am a real estate guy so for me location is paramount in choosing where to do mba and invest time and money.
I had one more question since I am joining cass this fall would you advice doing cfa level 1 as I do not have prior finance industry experience or will the cass mba which is strong in finance provide me with financial knowledge to apply. I am also inclined towards other career options such as consulting so am not only fixated on just doing finance. I have entrepreneurial ambitions to start new business after mba. So am keeping an open mind.
Hence would cfa make sense in that case. I am an international applicant who would need tier 2 visa for sponsorhip hence am targeting top companies except MBB type

You don't need any finance training to make the most of an MBA. Part One of the CFA will duplicate it, but you have much better support in an MBA.

You need to focus more on your goals and values.
