Which of these grad school programs should I attend to start a career in finance?

I was recently accepted to the following programs and was wondering which would be the best choice for someone looking to start a career in finance:

Interested in whichever program will lead me to the most financially lucrative career path. 

Would eventually like to work buy-side front office or corporate development. 

New to finance so would greatly appreciate anyone with more knowledge letting me know their recommendations, any other factors I should consider, career options/routes I would have after either program, or just general advice. 

Brief Background: 23M, BComm majoring in Econ, minoring in Fin from non-target in Canada. Two years of internship experience, most relevant was a Financial Analyst internship at Deloitte

Thank you all in advance.
