Is the program fully taught in English? I haven't learnt any German before.

Do you mean SFI PhD or MSc QF? Both are in English of course.There's also Master of Financial Engineering @ EPFL also taught in Engilsh.

Alright, but how is the placement record of ETH MSc QF and EPFL MSc Fin Eng? I think you may have some insights.

I don't know much about EPFL, except that they help in arranging in internship, which is quite feasible given number of shops in Geneva.Concerning MSc QF in Zurich, I would say that graduates' placements depend mostly on the graduates themselves, though benefiting from the program's contacts is not that uncommon also.I once spoke to a guy from Imperial's masters and I think it's actually quite the same there, despite that Imperial's program might market itself more agressively. Of course being physically in London helps, but you'll have to rely more on yourself rather than the school. That's probably a difference between such programs and places like LBS.If you want more details, PM me. Though I remember we were discussing the issue once and I don't think much changed since then.P.S. Update: Concerning MSc Quantitative Finance UZH/ETH (former MAS Finance) graduates, there's an (outdated) alumni site http://www.alumni-msfinance.ch/. There's been some activity and it looks it should be updated soon.
