Hi I am applying to STEM Designated MS Finance program in US and would like some help.

I am an Indian male, graduated from a decent Indian university in Economics. GPA 3.1. GMAT 690 (Q49, V36)
I have also cleared Level 3 of the CFA program.
I have been working as an FP&A analyst at a mid size textile firm for the past 2 years. Also recently I have also started to work as a financial consultant pro bono with an early stage solid waste management start up.
I have participated in several extra curricular activities during my college and also volunteered, but after college, working and preparing for the CFA exams took all my time.

I am targeting MS finance programs at following universities:
MIT
Rochester
Rutgers
Tulane
SUNY buffalo
Fordham
Syracuse
Brandeis
Babson

Scholarship is crucial for me and my goal is to work as a buy side analyst in USA.
I wanted to know about the quality of these programs and also the career prospects post graduation.
I would also like to know how competitive my profile will be for entry level jobs in the US and what I should do to improve my chances to secure a job there.

Competitive with all the schools except MIT. Issue is only a handful will be optimal when it comes to finding a job. I would focus on STEM certified programs to allow for extra OPT time. Rochester and Tulane are probably the best on there, with Rochester giving you the best opportunity at NYC jobs.
