My profil:
Bachelor: Accounting and Finance GPA 3.52(top 1%) courses: linear algebra, statistics, probabilities, time-series, econometrics, stochastic calculus, 2 courses in computational finance with MATLAB. I have finished an online program in JAVA(140 hours).
GMAT: 710(Q50, V35)
IELTS:7.5 (6.5 Writing and Speaking)
A 3-month intnership in a brokerage firm(department of derivatives but not quantitative job)

I am interested in trading and quant roles. I would like to work in algorithmic trading or be a front office quant. Workplace: anywhere in Europe or USA

Imperial RMFE: very good placement,strong name in UK but it is in the business school(not so quantitative).Most graduates work in risk management roles.
UCL Comp Fin: it is more quantitative and programming-oriented(it is in the computer science department),strong name but Imperial has better reputation
ETH Quant Fin: strong name,quantitative curriculum but I don't know if I should learn German in order to live in Switzerland.
EPFL Fin Eng: quantitative program,same problem with ETH(maybe I need to learn French)

What would you suggest me?
