Non-EU citizen prospects in US/Europe
I am a North African junior finance student with a near perfect GPA, native Arabic and fluent English. I would like to get a master's degree from a reputable Continental European university, since US and UK degrees are way too expensive and the universities don't provide much aid to foreign students, and then to land a job in IB in London, or more preferably NYC (although I have an idea of how difficult it is). I intend to apply to HEC, HSG, Bocconi, and maybe another one or two programs. I was thinking of enrolling in a German course during my last two college years as a way to potentially have an advantage when applying to London positions, or if that isn't possible to help land a position in Frankfurt or Zurich and I was wondering if it would be worth the investment, since A1-B2 courses are expensive (amounting to about a semester's tuition in my university, which is a lot). I've seen comments where some people say that English in enough for positions in DACH, others where they say that it's next to impossible for a non-EU citizen to land a job there. Would the course have a good return on investment?
