Honestly, There is no major difference in prestige between your two options. Other factors come into play here.
Northeastern is the answer and it isn't even close if you want to stay in New England. Northeastern has a lot more alumni in the area and ties into a lot of the major corporations in that area. Syracuse has more in NYC.

You can't convince them to do a weekend or executive MBA? You'd be better off doing that than going to those 2 schools. If you want AM or high level Corp fin you are better off getting the network that a T20 or even a strong regional school offers, I'd give some thought to that as Duke has the CCMBA and Stern and Babson have a PT program, Columbia has an EMBA, both IU and UNC have online programs.

I doubt they'd think if you went to a good program that you'd use it to bail. I think you explain the value proposition in 2 ways: enhanced learning and a better network. Explain you'll have more exposure via both classmates and alumni to the people likely to make use of the more sophisticated financing solutions your bank offers. Also you'll learn through cases and better work experience makes the cases better.
