Yo,

I am currently in the QFIN at WU Vienna. The decision heavily depends on your background. If you come from a business background, you will have a tough time in Vienna (in most cases) with the challenging stuff that you gonna learn. While most students get to know each other in weekly parties etc. you will spend most of your "social time" doing homework with them. Furthermore, you will learn a lot of theoretical stuff here. It is a lot of maths. But if you already did a lot of maths in your bachelors, its gonna be rather easy most of the time. A big plus is the fact that you will have professors who spent significant time in Wharton, Princeton, etc. And Prof. Hornik (director of the programme and who teaches a lot) is just a genius.

And btw, we also have a bloomberg terminal afaik :) (although access is somewhat restricted)

But judging from your post, I wouldnt recommend going to WU.

I just felt the social aspect was very important for you which is not a problem here (lots of nice people) but other programmes might be stronger concerning this aspect.

If you want a little taste of what you can expect:

Lots of people work in risk because it is a growing sector with current regulation changes. IMO it is a hot place to work in as a quant.

If you want to take quant roles in BB Trading etc. you probably need some more IT skills than just R.

I had CBS on my radar, too but decided for WU because I felt the curriculum in Vienna is more complete and CBS is more applied.

Neither choice will close the door to BB. I am convinced skill will get you anywhere.
