Agree whole heartedly here. Experience counts for everything and where/what you studied counts for very little.

I'm 27, in the finance industry on a relationship management role drawing 90k basic. I believe that is quite decent for someone who graduated from SIM UOL just 2 years ago.

This is the true "food chain" in finance. who you know > EQ > what you know > where you studied > what you studied. This doesn't really apply to all roles in finance, but really my point here is that is way too much importance on where/what you studied relative to its importance.
