Dear friends from WSO,

I am considering taking a Master's Degree next year and apart from the most popular ones everybody know I've been told to apply to the HEC Montreal MsC in Financial Engineering as I have lived in Montreal for a semester due to the exchange program I did as an undergaduate at McGill University. Admission requirements do not seem challenging as they only ask for a 630 GMAT. Given the fact I am pursuing a career in S&T right now in Canada/US/London, what are your thoughts on this? Anyone here who has taken this program?

Many thanks beforehand for your valuable comments,

It's a good program but career opportunities are limited to NBC and Desjardins. Waterloo would be a better choice.
