A lot of people interested in Finance might be hunting for the next layer of good finance schools after the H/S/W's of the world. It might be due to money or lesser years of experience or a variety of other reasons.

I propose to start this thread for all other guys like me looking to make a career in Finance. We could have a look at the list of schools below and comment on which one is more suited for a MBA finance than the other. This could help all of us to understand the nitty grities of these schools and what these could bring to us.

Guys

After H/S/W
The top finance schools are Chicago and Columbia.
If you are looking for Quant-heavy finance (as opposed to IB) go to MIT-sloan

Other good finance schools
NYU Stern, Cornell-Johnson, NYU, Simon also good. for Wall Street
UT - McCombs good for Texas not for Wall Street
Going to 2nd tier BC is good (not to be confused with BU which is not as good)

A few clarifications required.........

If you are looking for Quant-heavy finance (as opposed to IB) go to MIT-sloan -- What is really quant heavy and where does it take you finally then....

Is NYU Stern just another good bskool, i think it is a top skool for IB guys or any fin guys... Correct me if i am wrong

Didn't get this one either -
Going to 2nd tier BC is good (not to be confused with BU which is not as good)

Also, how about Emory, CMU, Darden and Olin....

For energy finance and corporate finance,

or Msc in Accounting.

Tulane University is not a bad choice.

The top 3 colleges for finance are Wharton, chicago, and Columbia. Stern is at a distance after these. Wharton and Chicago are really close.

But, if you go to H/ S ...the brand name will work wonders....

UT-Austin is a good finance school....is a wrong interpretation. McCombs is a good..in fact very good...energy finance school. But, jobs in energy finance are not for internationals.

If you are an indian getting into McCombs then best bet for you is to stick to IT/ Ops.

search business week for b school...u'll get all u wan!!!
