Graduating from a non-target in the US this summer or next fall, finance major, no relevant experience, got interested in the industry only recently and after asking some WSO users for advice thought I'd apply to MsF programs as a plan B if I don't land any internship this summer.
I'm not a US citizen and would want to work in Canada after graduation because I'm interested in the natural resources sector (interested in gas & oil market, family has ties to solar energy and mining) as well as the immigration process is much easier (family has business relations and friends in Canada too, none in the US).
Any idea what US MsF programs are considered reputable in Canada? I'd apply to a Canadian one directly but seems like they are all part-time ones. I'm looking for a full time program.
I'd like to break into IB but to be honest if I could land a job in Canada straight out of MsF I'm open to anything in finance. Still, I'm primarily focused on IB as for now at least.
Any comment would be appreciated, thanks in advance for the help.
Update: I think I gone full retard with this post since the answer was pretty obvious. I'm applying to Vandy, Duke, WUSTL, and Nova; just sticking with programs with national reputation I think I'll be fine taking it to Canada. Might try UT Austin too, not sure yet. Also considering SMU but family is opposed to it, but since they want me to go to Simon Fraser I might as well not listen to them at all.
