Hi everyone. I am a senior at a top 35 liberal arts college, international student, majoring in Statistics. Had an internship experience at a hedge fund in Hong Kong. I am targeting my career in IB/Asset Management ideally. Planning to work either in NYC/Boston or Hong Kong. Prefer in the US. I have applied for several business school finance programs and got into the following ones. Advice needed for entering financial industry! Thank you so much!!
- Washington University in St Louis, MSF Wealth and asset management track, no STEM
pros: good school reputation, MSF program is recognized on wall street(I guess)
cons: location is not good, this WAM track is new, don't know the replacement yet
3.UVA MS in Commerce, Finance track, no STEM yet, heard of that they are applying for STEM
Pros: (semi) target school on the street, recognizable program, good placement
cons: not many international students, school reputation is okay
- Boston College, MSF, STEM
pros: good location, STEM, academic is good
cons: not sure about the placement, school ranking is average
4.Villanova University, MSF, no STEM
Pros: good placement, great alumnae network, good location
cons: reputation, not recognizable outside the US
Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!
