I am considering pursuing a MSF degree in the US. Has anyone heard of Stuart GSB? How is its reputation in the US?
Help! Thank you!

Yes, the Illinois Institute of Technology is reasonably well known in the US in general, and well known in the Midwest. It has some interesting MS offerings in Finance and Financial Management in Chicago that are certainly worth considering.

The business school is AACSB accredited. Like the website says, the Finance masters programs were ranked #11 by Global Derivativies which places IIT ahead of Purdue, Georgia Tech, UIUC, and USC. Of course, I would look at the rankings to see if the ranking system is relevant to you.

Unfortunately I do not have much data on the competitiveness of its graduates. I have come in contact with a few graduates of the MS programs but not enough to form a meaningful portrait of the competitiveness of the school.

What other schools are you looking at?

Thank you! I have looked for this kind of program for two weeks.... but nothing! My major in undergraduate ins't finance or anything related and have no work experiences. So the quantitive finance and FE are not right for me! The curriculum in Stuart seems best for me! And the location of it is good--- in downtown Chicago! I think the location is very important ... for the intership and replacement after graduation. Do you agree with me? Or it's just a myth?

I am looking at UIUC MSF program, but the campus is too far away from Chicago.
Should I overlook the ranking( for the B-school) and choose a school according to its location? I need your help ! Thank you!

Thank you for your list of some MSF programs! I am now looking at the program in Princetoin and contemplating the location of the
university....Exactly how far is Princeton to NY? Still care about the location! :oops:

May I ask what AACSB is ?

I am sorry for all the troubles!

As I recall, Princeton is roughly 45 miles from New York. I have included a link to a train schedule- you might find it useful.

AACSB is one of the major accrediting organizations for business schools worldwide.
