Is UC3M any good for a masters in finance for an international student?


I saw some LinkedIn profiles and many people seemed to have quant roles at investment banks etc. Is it of any use if I am a non EU student?

However, schools like IE and ESADE also have some great finance-oriented master's programs and are also ranked in the FT. ESADE is ranked especially highly for international mobility too.

So what would be better? My friends got into ie from bocconi with the worst grades in class. The program is way bigger and much more expensive than uc3m. The UC3m
class size is just 40.

Smaller class size might not matter to some students more than outcomes.

True. From what I understood by seeing the LinkedIn profiles of uc3m finance grads,
most of them seemed to be in quant and risk management roles.

However, what do you guys think about the uC3M's finance program? I also have admits from HEC Lausanne and nova lisbon
but was leaning towards uc3m

No I won't be returning to my previous company. I was wondering if I could study at hec Lausanne or UC3M, clear the frm exams and then apply for risk management roles in Dublin or in Asia.

I think these are respected school for their national markets but I don't think many forms will go there to recruit for Asian or Irish roles. Study where you want to work. Many schools, especially those with low fees, lack the resources to develop strong careers services.

You are right. However, what school has a stronger international reputation according to you? Also, what is a better program in your opinion? Nova, HEC Lausanne, UC3m or polimi

Reputation for what? In a way, you are better off just looking for the size of the alumni network in your target regions.

Yes I will do that. By reputation I meant academic reputation, better Student body, better location for jobs and a better alumni.

These schools will be almost unknown, with little alumni activity, in Ireland or most Asian cities. Politecnico will probably have the better network. Student quality and academics will be similar as I think these are all CFA partner schools. Little international recruitment there.

I did my undergrad there and only got into the economics for information technology masters and not the finance or the management ones. I was leaning towards HEC Lausanne as it seems to place much better than the other schools like nova, UC3m and polimi. Also, it has a better presence in investment banking in the UK
