    Hi everyone,

    Could you please tell me how would you rank these PhD for someone looking for a future career in the financial quant industry? (assuming I have math background and decent programming skills). Thank you in advanced! Between parenthesis are the specific research groups found in each of the departments.

    1) Oxford Math (Comput. and Math finance)
    2) LSE Stats (Risk & Stochastics)
    3) Columbia IEOR (Financial Engineering)
    4) Imperial College Finance (assuming it's possible to have a co-advisor and subjects from Math finance)
