Hey Aviral,

  • If you are targeting Oxford, Warwick, LSE  like b-schools then you must  have a top notch profile. GMAT score of 700 would be great. Academics with CGPA around 8.5+ is good enough to land you in to these schools and while decent extracurriculars would further add value to your application. Some example for extra curricular that you could highlight would be if you led a team or if you organised college events and showcase the impact generated. 
  • After Brexit a lot of firms are planning to shift their base from the U.K, which will increase your chances of employability if you’re considering going to schools in France, Germany or any other European countries.
  • For the Remedies to make up for low undergrad CGPA you need to score  700+ in GMAT and you need to showcase leadership skills in Extracurricular activity. Also you can provide a well written reason in your application. 

Hope these answers helped. Feel free to reach out to us on info@mim-essay.com  for any further doubts that you may have.

I would anyday suggest LSE. It is most reputed among the Univs you have mentioned. Also, London is the hot place for Finance jobs.

Accept LSE. Oxford is surely the next thing.


thanks dude...london is surely the hot place for jobs, i can knock on employers doors every single day!!



LSE's accounting and finance will get you an as good job as an MBA would. Amongst the non engg/science MS courses in the world (yes the whole world), i would rate this course to be the RULER!! Look at the content...& also the placements. if staying in London aint too costly for you, go ahead and take this one!! i have no reservations on my stand. As for the current leader in the poll---Oxford is great as a univ, but not always the best.....
Go for the course and then the Univ!!


well...there are many other masters programmes that I understand are better than this one...for example there're the MiF from London Business School. and the MFin from princeton...it's just that those are awfully hard to get into....

but yeah, LSE has its advantages...80% international students and being in london are some of them..
thanks living in hope!

Congrats!

I still remember your smashing post on GMAT last yr!

tc,
Uday


thanks hobbes!! i'm surprised that someone remembers!!!!! missed this somehow..

i have a conditional offer from LSE as well...the condition is that i need to take a course called managerial accounting and financial control in their summer school and make a B...no idea why they put that condition because it looks damn easy ...and i have an interview for the mfe programme at oxford next week...
i guess i prefer LSE though....being in london is definitely a plus

anyone who's going for an MSc in Accounting and Finance from the UK?

Well Mr. Samarth, Applying to univs and then asking ppl which one of them is good isnt the smartest thing to do. IMHO its all upto u and this thread wont serve u any good pupose.Asking ppl for their opinions wont do u any good.Just wait and decide after u get ur admit.Maybe we all will tell u that so and so univ is the worst place to go and god forbid u get a lone admit from that univ. I dont think it wude really help u.
Anyhow, all the best to u and may u get admitted in the best college
