Looking into several MSF programs. I want to end up in Dallas, so naturally UT-Dallas is appealing. Does anyone have any info as far as placement records or know if many Dallas HFs or Bulge Brackets recruit from this program? The info on their website is very limited. Any help would be much appreciated. I am sure to get in to Vandy and Nova, but would consider UT if recruiting was great, even if a lower tier school.
How strong is the UT Dallas MS in Finance?
UT Dallas does not have the best placement among MSF programs in the south or in general. Vanderbilt, UVA, and UTA have arguably the best placement for schools below the Mason Dixon line. If you're looking for opportunities in Texas, UTA would be ideal since you can network face to face with ease.

I don't agree that we can't have meaningful MSF rankings. It's simply not true based on my experiences. I've interacted with a lot of MSFs and I can tell you that schools are objectively better than others.
- WUSTL (2 years ago I would have had WUSTL above UTA)
- Others (JHU/Baruch/Fordham)
