Of the schools you mentioned, I would focus on the FT ranked ones. Of those, Fordham has a much better international mobility score than the others, meaning the rate at which students are able to move from one country to another is much better.

That said, Rochester, even though its international mobility score is lower, has much better salary outcomes.

It may be that you need to have conversations with these schools and ask them about (1) the success rate of Indian students who want to work in the US, and (2) the salaries of those students.

In terms of other programs, it surprised me that IIT - Stuart's program has such good salary outcomes and international mobility stats. That one might be worth looking into as well. I'm not sure if it's STEM certified.

Thank you for the reply Laurie.
You mentioned 'It may be that you need to have conversations with these schools and ask them about (1) the success rate of Indian students who want to work in the US, and (2) the salaries of those students.' Do you mean we can directly email the admission team of the schools and ask them these direct questions?

Also, IIT Stuart offers 'Masters of mathematical finance' under stem but not 'Masters of Science in Finance'.
Apart from the FT, can you suggest 2 other schools that are worth applying as I am not sure about my chances in FT ranked ones.
