Question by Michael N: How much of a difference does your school of graduation matter in getting a job in finance industry?
I am going to be a finance major and I am deciding between University of Miami (FL), Boston College, Wake Forest, Notre Dame (assuming I get in), and Wisconsin. Is one beneficial over another based on reputation in the industry? How much of a difference does it make?
Answer by Spock (rhp)
if your goal is Wall Street, it might make a huge difference. Ask the recruiters for each school if they have an alumni branch in Wall Street (or in the industry you’re interested in).
off hand, I’d guess BC has strongest alumni network of this lot. Seem to recall vague rumor that Fidelity Investments in Boston likes BC grads — and could be wrong about that.
