My post mba goal is I want to change my career to finance. (let me know the chances for it since i dont have any finance background)
I am planning to join for Spring 2014 in U.S . please let me know the appropriate universities that i stand a chance to get into.
I recommend you postpone your application for at least a year and get experience with some relevance to finance. First of all, it is hard to get accepted with less than two years of experience. It is also more difficult to transfer into a financial services position without experience than it was before the financial crisis. Waiting would make your more employable and more admissible.
