Msc Finance UEBS vs Msc Corporate Finance Cass


sgarsenal

I know that is not MBA related but you people seem to be very knowledgeable about post-grad education. I've got offers from both the University of Edinburgh for their Msc Finance course and from CASS business school for their MSc Corporate Finance course. I'm currently leaning towards Edinburgh because I like the course better and UEBS is affiliated with a more prestigious university. On the other side, CASS is located in London which could be great for networking events and stuff like that and is "highly" regarded on FT Rankings. However, I came across mixed reviews about CASS. Right now I am having a hard time figuring out which one to pick and I would deeply appreciate if someone could share her/his view on this choice.
I should point out that my ultimate career goal would working in IB after graduation. I do not really care about BBs (I do realize that for those firms my chances would be slim coming from both the aforementioned business schools) as long as it is IB and/or corporate finance related. Thank you :)

If you are targeting IB, why study corporate finance? 
Cass students, and students in London generally, have higher expectations and complain more. It's a better school for IB.
