Best MS Finance programmes in US? [#permalink] New post 16 Aug 2011, 13:41
Hi all,

I am considering applying for a MS Finance programme from a reputed institute in US. I have already done MBA from India. I was working as a stock analyst with a financial newspaper here in India. But I wasn't happy with the way my career was shaping up. When I read about top MS Finance programmes in US, I realized they are really quant intensive. Few things I would like to know:

a) First of all, which are the top MS Finance programmes in US?

b) Programmes, which are good, but are not very quant intensive?

c) Is it necessary to know what exactly am I gonna do after the programme? I went through the student profiles at some universities and they seem to suggest that students come with a very clear mind as to what kind of jobs they wanna get? For instance, an X person was working as a junior actuary before the programme and went on to get a senior position as an actuary after the programme.

d) How is the job scene for international students, if they manage to get into a reputed MS Finance programme?

regards,
Karan Sehgal

Quick answer for this one is - Princeton. Others could be Berkeley (MS in Financial Engineering). MIT has also short of program.

Look for the programs in big cities such as NYC, Chicago, Boston, LA etc..
