Brandeis MAief vs. Weatherhead MSM Finance [#permalink] New post 23 Apr 2012, 11:18
I have to decide between the two in one week. Which would you choose?

If I go to Brandeis, I'd choose the International Finance specialization in Asset Management vs MSM Finance just by itself (you cant really specialize anywhere).

Brandeis is 4 semesters vs. 3 at Case. And of course it is Boston vs. Cleveland.

Thoughts? Thanks!!

Which do you prefer? Brandeis is a good program, but Boston is saturated with talent. Cleveland is a little off the beaten path and might be less competitive.

Boston will allow you to network with NY. Cleveland you will have to travel to Chicago for the closest large metro.

Have you visited the campuses? Any preference?

AnthondyD1982,

I've actually used your website quite a bit during the application season for the MSF programs. Its a great resource you've set up - Thanks!

I've visited both campuses, and both programs have their pluses and minuses. While talking with admissions at Brandeis, I asked them how their students fair considering all the other options both students and employers have in Boston. I was told that because of the uniqueness of the program, it attracts its own little niche market of employers so their students are fairly successful after graduation. They also said that their ability to set up internship in places like London or Singapore were pretty solid.

Right now I'm leaning towards Brandeis because of the international component - you can structure your time there to get the focused, quantitative skills like the Case Western, but still have the international component that this program is known for. But being from the West coast, Case Western is a name they've heard of while not many have heard of Brandeis...

Thoughts?

Honestly, It comes down to what you think is the best. Both schools are good, in cities and offer pros and cons. You should ask yourself if you like Boston better or Cleveland. Where you want to work when you are done and which can help you achieve these goals.


In this economy you should also look at tuition cost and all in cost. If one is substantially cheaper that might be the deal breaker.
