Queen Mary - Paris - Banking and Finance


Dear All,

I am planning on applying for Queen Mary's program in Paris (Banking and Finance). Does anyone have any insights or comments on the program (i.e. lecturers, is it better/worse than the one in London etc.)?

Moreover, and more in general, can someone please clarify where the QM stands in terms of rankings? Is it considered a top/good university or just an average one?

Thanks in advance.

But the LLM in Paris will run for the first time in Paris, so I think you can't compare it with the London one.

Regarding the ranking, in general Qmul is in the top six, last year was ahead of King's, but behind LSE and UCL.

Could you instead advise me about a decision between UCL LSE or QMUL, which is the most complete and updated programme with all the relevant cutting edge financial legal aspects (regarding only the LLM in banking and financial law)?

Hi Merlo,

To state the obvious, LSE is way better than QMUL. UCL is good as well but LSE is definitely the best choice. At the end of the day, as sad as it may seem, it's more about the name than the contents. Anyway, I have not attended any of the above mentioned schools, hence I cannot provide you with a more detailed advice.

Where are you going to apply for your LLM in Bank. and Fin.?

I checked out also the Boston Univ. program. Could you suggest me other valuable programs in bank and fin.?

The point is it doesn't make any sense spending 50.000 $ in the US to study American Banking and Financial regulation etc.

Again, it's only about the name of the Uni. If you get into Harvard and attend the General LLM (which, specialization-wise, is useless) you'll always be deemed more competent than any other guy who attended any other school providing a more specific program.

Anyway, in my humble opinion, If you work in Europe, the best would be to attend a London Uni (i.e. LSE, UCL etc.) since the action is basically there.
