Hi all

I am currently working as senior credit analyst with icra limited( credit rating agency - moodys company) in india after my mba in a reputed college.

I have given my interview for the above two colleges. Interviews went on well. Expecting a convert if not both. My post mba goal is to get into Investment Banking or Corporate finance role in the same order of preference. Which one would be better? Any suggestion is really appreciated. Pros and cons as far as i know:

Simon
Pros - stem (big plus as i am an international student), good in finance placements, low class size, found career management service team to be really very active.
cons - location ( but i dont mind travelling to newyork once in 2-3 weeks to build network)

Boston college
Pros- Location advantage (but what i understand is boston is more known for healthcare though it has financial service companies- my personal preference is to settle in ny but i dont mind settling in boston if i get a good job), good in finance placements, small class size
Cons - not stem, infact adcom might ask us to sign saying that they are not responsible for placements

Overall, they are not great colleges, but decent ones with rank below 100. they are ranked in 30's for colleges in finance. i think boston colege is slightly higher ranked than simon.

My preference as of now is clearly simon because of stem. pls advise.

Also, i havent applied to ivey canada yet. if i get through in one of these, will applying to ivey makes sense. is ivey better than these two if i want to pursue career in finance? though my personal preference is to settle in usa ( only if ivey is really way above these two, i will think of applying to ivey).

It is not the first time that I heard of Carroll attitude about placement. If true, then I do not recommend this school because, from my view, it is dangerous sign for bigger picture: they do not care and they may sacrifice other issues, compared to other schools that try to help her students, even if they fail, they have exerted effort.

For Ivey, you choose between Canada and US. It is totally u to your preferences.

Good luck

Hi. Thanks a lot for your reply. Boston college - what they claim is they will definitely try to do their best to get students placed, but they dont want to assure anything which is true for any other school. Just that additionally they want in writing from the students that thy are responsible for their own fate.

Still waiting for the results. Once it is confirmed, may be i can speak to more current students to understand the real scenario.

Btw canada and usa, my choice is usa from day 1. But when both college and country put together, i was trying to understand where does ivey stand compared to simon and boston college. If it is stern / cornell (yet to get invited for interview / dinged), i am pretty sure- i will go with stern/ cornell.
