Hi guys!
Im an international student and got an offer letter from Miami Business School for the masters in Finance course with almost 50% scholarship.
I have to decide about miami in the next 3 days..
I've applied to other unis too but the result wont be out till march.
I've applied to
UIUC
OSU
Simon
baruch
Penn State

I have a 660 GMAT score with 9 months experience with a big four.
Im a little apprehensive about getting an offer from other unis.
Also, the Ms Finance course was recently started in Miami business school so I would like to know whether I should go for it? My main concern is job opportunities and brand name of the university.

Any help is much appreciated!

The school is well known in the US. Not sure it is regarded as a top finance school, but in Florida it will be well received. Placements will obviously be Florida focused (Miami, Tampa, Orlando, etc.).

Here is my opinion. Plenty of finance in South Florida, but the issue is it is centered around wealth management, commercial banking and real estate. Spanish fluency is a huge career benefit.

The other schools you posted will have a more Chicago / New York placement record. I'd rank OSU, Rochester, UIUC and Baruch above Miami when it comes to placements and opportunity.

Thank you so much for the insight!

Also, How would you rate the Ms Finance course of Baruch Zicklin in terms of placement? I ask this because if I get into Baruch, my cost of living will be extremely low because my siblings live in Manhattan.

This makes the choice pretty obvious my friend. Baruch placements are hard to discern. That being said, Baruch is a) in Manhattan and b) has been educating people on Wall Street and in the business/finance sector for decades. Tons of alumni on the street and a great name in NYC. If your COL is dirt cheap, why wouldn't you go there.

I'd rank Baruch well over UMiami with what you told me.

UPDATE:
I got admitted to UIUC and Baruch Zicklin. However, the deposit deadline is march 8th for UIUC
I also gave the interview for simon and it went pretty good but the result wont be out till april.

and I really want to go for simon because i want to work in NYC area. Should i let illinois go and take the risk of waiting for simon? how would you rank UIUC and Simon Rochester?

also, the cost efficiency factor might no longer work in the case of Baruch.

any help in deciding among the three is much appreciated!
