I am an international student applying for MSF (or MFin) in the U.S.
GRE: 169/170 Q, 155/170 V
No previous work experience in finance, only business development at a private company.
I have already chosen the MSF programs which attract me most (and these are quite top programs), but I would like your advice as to which programs I should apply to as a back-up plan. I understand that I still need to like these programs and opportunities that they can provide. Choose 2 programs.
Considering that I am an international student who wants to stay in the U.S. and work, preferably in IB, capital. The locations I prefer are Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, but since I know that getting an internship/job is hard for internationals, I will be happy to work in another city as long as there is a prospective opportunity to move to NY, Philly, Bos, SF.
The criteria are: recruting for internationals in the regions and jobs I mentioned; networking; being a BACKUP (meaning that I apply there and can be certain of getting in); location (city itself, opportunities).
Please discuss what you think about these programs (as backup plans):
- John Hopkins
- U of San Fransisco
- Arizona State U
- Boston U (MS mathematical finance)
- Ohio State U
P.S. Merry Christmas to all members of WSO!
