Msc Finance Strathclyde vs. Msc Finance & Banking Bath


sharonsp

Hi.
I have an offer for MSc Finance and Banking from Bath and awaiting a response from Strathclyde for MSc Finance.
I want to move into the financial sector and my main aim is to get a finance related job in the UK after the completion of the course.
I found that both have decent rankings in FT MiF even though the overall rankings of these universities in QS aren't all that good.
Assuming I get an offer from Strathclyde, what would you suggest I choose ?
I would also like to mention that Strathclyde is a triple accredited Business School and the course I wish to pursue is CIMA and CFA Accredited whereas Business School at Bath is double accredited and the course hasn't mentioned any finance accreditations. How important are these accreditations for students pursuing finance courses?

I looked at the FT MiF ranking and don't see either school. https://rankings.ft.com/rankings/2874/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2022 Why do you think they are well ranked?

My bad. I had checked the 2021 rankings and they’re present there. However I checked the 2022 rankings and both the schools aren’t mentioned.

Any suggestions from your end? What is your opinion on these two schools?

Bath is the better of the two but a more strongly ranked programme would be better.
