    Hey guys,


    Next year I'll finish my undergrad in and hopefully I'll be able for apply to a Master's degree.

    So two schools have caught my interest : LSE (London School of Economics) and NYU (New York University).

    Basically, at LSE I'd apply for a Master's degree in Management and at NYU I'd apply for a Master's degree in Mass Communication.

    I've tried looking online but all I've found are mixed reviews. Everyone ends up saying it all depends where you want to live...

    I feel like NYU is more famous but LSE is more prestigious...

    Has anyone been to these schools? What do you guys think?


    PS: I'm just asking by curiosity, both schools are very difficult to get into, I'll need killer GRE scores and good recommendation letters so chances are I may not even get in, lol

    This thread would make more sense if the two masters programs were the same. So it sounds you're asking which is the better city to live in, and not so much which school is better.

    No I don't care about which city, both are fine to me.

    I am asking which school is better because even though I'd apply for Mass Communication, I'd still be in NYU whereas if I apply for Management, I'd be in LSE which may be less impressive. Therefore, I'm just asking.

    So what's your career goal? Is there a particular industry or company you want to work for?

    LSE is not really famous for management, maybe you should look into LBS.

    NYU's Mass Com- i have no clue.

    And I agree with the other people here, it's hard to compare two schools and two different master's program.

    But if I had to choose, NYU. LSE is prestigious...for Economics.
