Best quantitative finance programs

Hello WSO, I am an undergraduate computer science student from a non-US, non-target university who somehow managed to land a trading internship at a $20B+ quant hedge fund based in Chicago for this upcoming summer. I am thinking about doing a master's degree in the United States at a top school to boost my educational credentials. I'm interested in something quantitative, math-y and CS-y, and so far I like MIT Sloan and Princeton's MFin program. Considering that I want to be a trader instead of a quant, should I go for MFin or MFE and which schools have the most reputable programs?

dont go for MIT.
Princeton MFin and Columbia Business School MSc in Financial Economics are good.
CMU and Columbia MFE (under engineering school) are pretty good. go to quantnet for more info on these.
good luck!
