MSF - 90% international students placement!


Duncan
If you want to work in the USA, is the Master of Science in Finance a safer bet than the MBA? I saw an interesting trio of statistics today:

For the Class of 2014, within 6 months of graduation:
- 100 Percent of domestic students accepted job offers
- 90 Percent of international students seeking jobs in the U.S. accepted job offers
- 85 Percent of all international students accepted job offers

I know the University of Washington also has excellent placement from its MSF degrees. Although some other schools are still struggling to develop the right placement support, these are great outcomes for international students.

Interesting. I wonder if we'll see this program show up in this year's FT Master of Finance ranking.

You need quite a big number of responses, including people brave enough to give their exact salary, to get in. That is quite an advantage for schools in the US, where that sort of thing is more acceptable socially. Certainly the leadership role of European schools in the pre-experience rankings will take a while to shift. A major obstacle is that in one major market, India, the Master of Science degree is simply not understood in the same way. Schools like Strathclyde, with its 'Masters of Business Management", are getting the branding better.
