Warwick vs Imperial for MBB as an international student


Abhi88

I'm an international Student with a finance undergraduate degree and a year's experience. I want to get into consulting and wish to make it to MBB. I did apply to LBS/Oxbridge but was unsuccessful there. I currently have the following offers;

1) MSc Economics and Strategy for Business from Imperial
2) MSc Business and Finance from Warwick

Although the course modules are a bit different I am interested in both and have got varying advises on which one is better. Please share your opinions on which choice more suitable for my goals and which is better regarding the teaching quality, brand value and career service.

Also let me know if my course selection is correct for my goals.

Neither will probably lead to MBB. What's your alternative career goal?

Thanks for guiding me in the right direction. I did realize Imperial/Warwick is a not target school for MBB but Imperial had advertised Bain and Co in their programme page as a recruiter and released an interview of a student who got into BCG so got my hopes up.



If not MBB I'll still try for consulting or analyst roles in the UK/EU with institutions of repute(IB is also an option I would like to try).

I would greatly appreciate your opinion on the suitability of the 2 courses for this.



Also let me know if there is anywhere else I could apply that may have missed out on. I have rejects from LSE/Oxbridge/LBS. Offers from Imperial, Warwick, UCL and Bayes but consider the first 2 a better choice.

32% at Imperial end up in any consulting and 42% are employed in the UK. If you multiply those numbers together, that gives you a 13% change of UK consulting, and that's probably going to be Accenture or the big four advisory and audit firms. At Warwick, it's 12.5%*10.7%, so 1.3%. Imperial is thus a much better option.

I'm assuming that Imperial students that aren't employed in the UK have voluntarily moved to other places for better jobs. I hope it isn't the case that even Imperial students fail to find satisfactory employment.



Going purely by those numbers, yes Imperial does seem to be the better bet

Indeed. They will, generally, have returned to their own countries.
