IIT MSF and Zicklin MSF

I am from Korea and have recently received offers from two institutions, both of which were within my budget and the only ones I applied to. Previously, I have worked in Venture Capital and Private Equity in East Asia. These experiences have significantly shaped my motivation to pursue a career as an Investment Banker (IB). However, I am not looking to join bulge bracket firms like Citi, JP Morgan, or Goldman Sachs. Instead, my interest lies in working for regional investment banking companies.

Upon graduating from either of these two institutions, I am aware that it does not guarantee a job in the field. However, I am hopeful that it will pave the way for me to secure a position as an Investment Banker at a local office

Thus, is it worth to go one of them? 

IIT MSF is more like quantitative something codings and mathmatics

Zicklin MSF is more like traditional finance curriculum.
