MSc investment management- Bayes or Henley??


Hi,


My background- bachelor in engineering, 3 years of experience in financial services industry at Morningstar, looking for Masters in UK and moving into investment banking


I've applied to 10 major universities in UK and so far have received offers from


MSc investment management Henley (Reading)

MSc investments Birmingham

MSc investment management Bayes(formerly Cass)

MSc Financial Analysis and Fund Management Exeter

Received reject from Cranfield and Warwick


I'm yet to hear from University of Edinburgh, Durham, Lancaster and Alliance Manchester


( My profile isn't strong for LBS or Oxbridge, and I've not considered Imperial, KCL or UCL due to budgetary constraints)



I've checked latest FT rankings as well as QS Business Master's rankings 2022 for those listed above.


Considering those rankings and Bayes being in London, I'm leaning towards accepting the offer. Henley is my close second choice.


However, Bayes and Henley are not part of Russell group, should that be big of a concern in terms of employment opportunities and career progression?


Is it wise for me to go for one of Birmingham or Exeter in that case?


Is there any higher ranked University that I'm missing here

Assuming you want to work in the UK, Bayes is the obvious choice.

Thanks Duncan, would you rate AMBS or Durham higher than Bayes as they are part of Russell group

No, the quality of the programme matters more. You can rely on the FT MiF ranking.
