Cornell MFE or LSE Msc Fin & Econ?

Youlan Dai

Which one is better?

For LSE: top institutions for Econ and Finance, London, kind of writing and reading intensive, tuition is OK
For Cornell MFE: IVY, #7 quant program, New York, affordable, although Cornell is roughly $40,000 more expensive than LSE o_O
Career goal: equity research/macro analysis or forecasting/the ability to do independent market research
Expected Places: NY,London,Shanghai etc

Well if I get Columbia's MFE, I would definitely choose this one(though it's also an expensive one-year program with bad career service and fierce competition with other Columbia, NYU, Cornell candidates...) But now I would like to make a choice between these two otherwise I can't sleep well.

Thank U for your advice.:)

The courses of Cornell is more focused on quantitative finance. As for your career goal, LSE is more suitable for you!
