Is anybody familiar with the MSc Finance and Economics program at the London School of Economics and Political Science? Does the LSE brand name mean anything in the US? I'm trying to choose between this and Columbia MSFE. As far as I can tell the LSE program appears to offer broader options in Investment Banking, and still has a strong quantitative slant (even though it's not really a quant program per se). I already have a strong background in mathematics (not financial though) and I'm thinking that with this many quant roles would still be accessible for me, but the opposite is not true, i.e. some less quantitative roles in IB would be out of reach with FE. Am I missing something? And which kind of program holds better promise in terms of salary/compensation?
