I am an International student with admits from Rutgers MQF and Columbia MAFN. I am a facing a serious dilemma in choosing between the two. In terms of career goals, I am more interested in a career in quantitative buy side. In terms of background I am an Engineer and hold a MBA with close to 6 years of experience in Investment Banking. Rutgers has a more favorable curriculum, a structured 1.5 year program with a decent brand and an alum network. Columbia has a much bigger brand, better location but the course is very theoretical and is more expensive (90k vs 60k). Any comments would help.
