Columbia Human Rights MA or King's College London Conflict Security and Development MA?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've been very fortunate with graduate school applications, and now I've narrowed it down to two. I am still waiting for Johns Hopkins SAIS Bologna and Oxford's MSc in Migration Studies, but they're long shots, so now I'm trying to be conservative and working with acceptances I already have. 


I've been accepted to Columbia's Human Rights Studies Masters program (not SIPA) and King's College London's Conflict, Security and Development program. Neither gave me a scholarship, so cost wise is going to be roughly the same.


The reason I want to go to grad school is of course to be as employable as possible and be as competitive in the job market as soon as I graduate. I've been scouring the internet for Columbia HRSMA's employment statistics post-grad but can't find anything, which is concerning. King's College London at least has statistics for the department that offers the conflict security and development course.


Is Columbia just a brand name then? Should I accept KCL's offer? I want to work in multilateral/international development areas, particularly ones that involve migration studies like the IOM, UNHCR, UN OCHA, etc.


Thanks for your inputs!
