Best one year finance master's
Hi, I'm thinking of applying to a one year finance master's in the US and Europe. Here are my stats
- 24 Asian male. One year internship at a startup.
- GPA 3.56
- GRE 326, GMAT 720
- Non-target school (saw several people networking their ass off to MBB and BB but rare).
I wish to work in NY/London IBD. I don't have a work permit in either of those countries.
Programs I'm considering applying to:
- Vanderbilt MSF
- Oxford MSc Financial Economics
- LSE MSc Finance
- LSE MiM
- MIT MFin (Probably out of my reach)
- Washington University St Louis MS Finance
- HEC Paris Msc Finance
- IE Business School Msc Finance
- Bocconi MiM of Msc Finance
My goal is an IBD front office, possibly consulting.
Location preference is NY>London.
I'm not that good at math (took calculus, linear algebra, and probably. Did ok, but probably not enough at places like Princeton or maybe MIT).
Pros about European programs (especially the ones in France, Spain and Italy) are that they're cheap and I can learn a languages. Cons are that they're not in the US and I feel unsure if I can get a job in London graduating from Bocconi or HEC as a non-european.
Pros about the US schools are I have a better chance at getting a job in the US especially with STEM OTP at places like Vanderbilt (placement seems impressive).
Cons are that they are very expensive.
I'd like to hear your opinions about the schools and my plan. If you went to any of the above program, I highly appreciate your advice. Also in general if it's possible to get a job after finishing those programs as a foreigner.
