Accepted into the University of Mannheim (MMM & MMBR) and Goethe University Frankfurt (MMF & IM); which program to choose?

Dear Community,

I have been accepted into the MMM and MMBR Programs at the University of Mannheim and also into the MMF and IM Programs at Goethe University Frankfurt. (Note: If you are not familiar with the initials of the programs I've written their complete names below.)
I need advice to help decide which program to choose; currently I am leaning towards choosing the MMM Program at Mannheim but I would like input from those of you who are familiar with these programs and universities in Germany. Regarding myself, I have a finance BBA degree from a university in NYC, a gmat score of 730, I am a citizen of a Latin American country, and I have a few years of work experience.** I want to know which program do you think offers more opportunities to land a job in trading/banking with a top-tier bank. **I am not only interested in opportunities in Germany but also in America (the whole continent) and anywhere else.
Also, I would like to hear the opinion from someone who is familiar or might have enrolled in Goethe's MMF Program regarding its career opportunities in Germany and Globally (Maybe you can comment about the QTEM Program). The MMF program seems very appealing to me, but the University of Mannheim is very likely the best Business School in Germany and way more known globally than Goethe Frankfurt University.

Mannheim:
MMM: Master in Management – Finance Specialization
MMBR: Master in Business Research (a highly challenging and quantitatively oriented program)-Finance Track
Goethe:
MMF: Master in Money and Finance
IM: Master in International Management

I studied in Mannheim for a semester and my impression is that Mannheim not only ranks better in Germany, but also in Europe - if you check FT rankings you will see that Mannheim is the best business school in Germany vs. Goethe which is not even in the ranking. Regarding opportunities in trading/banking, you have all the major banks and consulting companies going there. Also, both campuses are very good for European standards. Keep in mind that it's Europe, so adjust your expectations (a lot of Americans complain about the quality of European universities). Very important: Mannheim is not a great city - quite small and not very "pretty" - Goethe in that regard would be way better.
