Which MSc program to choose

Dear fellow Monkeys

I need a bit of advice on which school to choose for better career prospects,


Offers:

  • Bayes Business School: MSc Banking and International Finance
  • EBS Business School (Oestrich Winkel) : MSc Finance
  • Antwerp School of Management: MSc Finance
  • Henley Business School: MSc Corporate Finance
  • Queen Mary : MSc Banking and Finance

Decision yet to be released :

  • University of Edinburgh: MSc Management
  • University of Exeter: MSc Financial Analysis and Fund Management
  • Vlerick Business School: MSc Finance
  • ISEG School of Economics : MSc Finance
  • Goethe Business School: MSc Money, Macro and Finance

Profile:

International, Male, 30 year old

Non-quantitative/business undergrad

1.5 years in business consulting

7 months in start up consulting


I already know it would be hard to break into IB or AM with these schools but i like to try to get a foot in the door or at least start with Big 4 consulting or CB, and before you say these are non targets, i wouldn't be able to get better places with my undergrad.


I'm open to suggestions, thanks.
