I've been accepted to:
Brandeis M.A. International Economics and Finance
Washington University St. Louis M.S. Corporate Finance and Investments
Duke Fuqua Master of Management Studies
University of Virginia M.S. Commerce Financial Services Track
University of Maryland M.S. Business: Finance
Syracuse University M.S. Finance
Where should I go? How would you rank those schools in order of where I should go? How much stock should I put in the Financial Times rankings?
http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/mast... They are the only body that ranks pre-experience Finance programs.
Background: I got a degree from a U.S. School in International Relations with a minor in Economics. I've been working for about a year in a firm specializing in pensions so I have little experience working in Finance. I want to work in Finance, Consulting, Venture Capital, or Investment Banking in California (preferably Southern Cal) after my degree because my girlfriend is doing a Phd. out there.
Thank you for any help or advice you can offer me. I really appreciate it. This is a big decision in my life.
