Hi Akshat

as someone who went to BU and then ended up in business/finance I can probably provide some advice

- it will be tough to get top IB role in NYC (London or Hong Kong) after any of these schools but doable (in my case I had to do Masters to find a job)
- traditional finance industry is shrinking and you don't know what it will look like in 4 years so keep your options open
- a lot of employers are looking for quant skills these days so my suggestion would be to take as many quant classes (math, CS etc)

BU is a great place and you will probably feel like home there due to a number of international students. Boston is a great place for foreigners and I am sure you will love the place. But there aren't that many BU alums in finance or consulting although a number of my friends have landed good jobs in big 4, corporate etc.

I agree with our team's comments above on UIUC - the school has great reputation these days.

I would choose between BU and UIUC. Send me a message if you have any other questions.
