Chance of getting into a Masters in Finance program in NYC? [#permalink]
29 Mar 2011, 18:09
I'm interested in pursuing a Masters in Finance degree in the NYC area. I have 5 years of experience working at a major investment bank in derivatives trade support and valuations. At this stage, I'd like to move into a market risk quantitative role. As such, a Masters in Finance makes sense for me.
What does everyone think of my chances at getting accepted to a MSF program in NYC (or Northeast in general) with the following credentials:
 5 years work experience in derivatives  Bachelors in Finance (took only finite math, Calc 1, Statistics 1)  Good recommendations  GMAT 620 (Q: 69%, V: 58%)  I took the GMAT since I initially thought that an MBA is a good fit for me  Deep interest to study quantitative finance  Willing to take math courses to satisfy requirements before entry
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
Thank you!
