Washington University in St. Louis

The Washington University in St. Louis Master in Finance program recently posted their 2012 placement statistics along with their class of 2013 profile. As always, the program continues to place strongly and show an impressive admissions profile. Everything I hear from students is positive and it seems as if employers feel the same way also.

With placements in NYC, Chicago as well as across the country this program absolutely is one of the best.
