Cheap but Quality M.S Finance Program in Europe
September 16, 2011 1:30 AM   Subscribe

Looking for "cheap" but high quality masters/finance program in Europe(preferably), that has an emphasis on hedgefunds/quant/derivatives/trading and is taught in English.

Switzerland or Germany is a +

I'm only willing to get the Master's if it is (relatively, compared to good US grad schools) cheap. I would really kill for an excuse to get into Switzerland and start living there and possibly working. The more comprehensive the list though, the better.

Have you considered doing the course online with University of London External?

I think you want to ask mutant about this, if he's not already typing up his answer.

Erasmus University Rotterdam is considered one of the best universities in the Netherlands (a country that has a major role in the history of banking).

They have many M. S. courses that fit your criteria (taught almost exclusively in English), all provided by one of Europe's top-ten management departments (according to the Financial Times).

It's not Germany or Switzerland, but it's a major player in financial and political Europe, and well-placed for travel around Europe.

For Switzerland the place that springs to mind is the University of St Gallen - it says on this page that they have 5 Master's degrees offered in English. I have no idea how much the course itself costs, but living in Switzerland in any case is not cheap. I am not sure that you are paid as a Master's student (you would be as a PhD).

Response by poster: Thanks, these are good suggestions, how difficult are these to get into?

I've been looking at ETH in Switzerland, i don't think my GPA is good enough even though I graduated from a top 40 u.s. school
