Looks like the University of Utah Master in Finance program is picking up. They have refreshed their webpage and class statistics are now posted. Utah has a lot more finance than I think people typically give it credit. Goldman Sachs has a large operation out there. Might not be NYC front office like many people want, but it is a great way to start a career with a globally recognized name.
