MSF - WUSTL vs ASUSubscribe
Hope you all are doing well in these troubled times.
I have received MSF admits from ASU (WP Carey) and WUSTL (Olin) for the 2020 intake (No idea when it will start given the current situation). (Awaiting decision from Simon)
The ASU program is a 1 year course with STEM designation. For WUSTL I have the Asset Management track for 18 months, which isn't STEM.
I'm an Indian student with 2 yrs of big4-IB. I am looking to break in to HF industry post my program.
From what i understand WUSTL course is very highly rated. Also, it is relatively closer to the east coast and Chicago. However the STEM designation of ASU program allows me to have 24 months OPT visa extension, in addition to the 12 months allowed for non-stem masters.
Keeping the above facts in mind, would you guys recommend choosing the relatively okay-ish STEM ASU course or going for the highly-rated non-STEM WUSTL course?
Thank you for your help and take care.
