Good option for finance major in boston

My son is studying IB diploma in India. After completing high school he wants to study finance in US (boston in particular). He has scored 1740 in SAT at first attempt, he will attempt again in oct and hopes to achive above 1900.

What are good options for him where he has some real chance of admission.

    We just looked at four schools in Boston that might be potential options - Boston University, Bentley, Babson, and Bryant (1 hour outside Boston in Rhode Island). My son's SAT scores are a little higher than yours, but not much, and he is also doing a rigorous program at his prep school. His favorite by far was Bentley, and frankly that was the one that impressed me the most as well, - - however BU and Babson both have large international contingents so those potentially might be a more comfortable fit. Happy to answer questions about any of these. BU and Babson are the more selective options of the four.

    Northeastern is another choices in Boston. I do think the SATs will have to come up to be competitive. If you need finanical aid as an international that would likely hurt his chances.
