我就不谈值不值得的问题了,就比如我问你留学值不值得,不同的人就会有不同的回答。值不值得是个很主观的问题,取决于你个人。

我下面只是谈一谈我对MSF这个专业的认识。在美国,MSF其实是一个比较尴尬的专业,虽然下面的回答和评论中有很多人说MSF其实很好,就业很好,还举了例子,但我还是这么坚持认为。它是一个硕士才开设的专业,你可以本科读了直接就申请。按照中国的教育体系,一般就是本科读了读硕士,然后就业。美国不是这样,在美国,商科专业一般都是本科读完,工作几年然后再回学校读MBA这种路线。这也是为什么美国大学开设MBA的学校多,但开设MSF的学校明显少很多。直接本科过后读硕士的基本上都是国际学生(中国学生是主力,这也是为什么很多人说MSF水的原因之一),很少有美国人这么干。

这也就造成了在就业上,针对MSF的职位很少。要么给了本科生,要么给了有工作经验的MBA学生。MSF被夹在中间,虽说是个硕士文凭,但本科生的职位别人也不会要你,因为本科生就足够了,你去了可能还得多付你工资。需要MBA的,你又做不了。

其次一年制的时间实在太短,对于中国学生来讲,一年的时间可能你的英语沟通能力都没什么提升,无论是networking还是将来在职场中应用,你都处于极其劣势的地位。招聘方在招人的时候肯定会考虑这些因素,而你就处于最容易被淘汰的那一批人当中。

你所见到的,听到的那些读MSF能留在美国找到理想工作的,肯定都不是普通人能够做到的。我认识一个进了投行的朋友,人家从踏入美国开始就已经在准备就业了,其中付出的努力和艰辛恐怕外人都很难了解。

至于h1b抽签的问题,STEM专业肯定占优势,不过都是看运气,有人第一年就抽中,有人到最后都没抽中。

如果是以就业为目的的话(尤其是留美),MSF肯定不是最优选择,相比之下,会计更好就业,因为需求在那;MBA的竞争力也更大(不过需要工作经验);MFE是偏技术的,相对比较容易就业,很多都是从事Risk Management相关的工作,不过要求数理基础好,如果没有这方面的兴趣和基础,建议不要选择。

最后,针对题主的问题:虽然MSF本身比较尴尬,但如果是排名比较高的学校的话,就业机会也会更大,因为商科很看校友资源这些因素,好的学校你的机会就更大。具体的可以参考这个:

顶级:MIT MFin(最大的优势就在于"The brand name of the Institute")

一档:CMC,Vanderbilt,WUSTL(C track)(这三家都属于小而精的项目,招收中国背景的数量特别特别少,就业率超级棒,推荐美本的同学申请)UT Austin(在德州首屈一指,非美本也可以申请)

二档:Rochester,UIUC,Brandeis,UCSD,Boston College,OSU,UMD(这些MSF是录取咱们中国同学的主流项目,申请的把握比较大,但是就业方面不如上一档次的学校)

另外有一所Villanova的MSF,大学本身知名度不高,但是就业很棒。
