Dear Career Doctor,

I would like to seek your advice on whether I should accept the offer of the program of LLM in International Corporate and Financial Law provided by SCOPE and University of Wolverhampton.

Let me tell you my background. I graduated from a local university and major in finance. After my graduation, I worked in a Big four for five years and became a qualified accountant. Now, I am working in a corporate finance firm to provide advisory service in M&A transaction. Part of my job includes to review and execute the legal documents that I believe taking a master program in corporate finance law would benefit my career.

In the meantime, I am also considering to take a distance learning course MSc Finance and Financial Law offered by the University of London.

Do you think I should take these courses? I am concerned about the reputation of course and university.
