hello! i am from india, i wish to pursue a mba in finanace or a MS in finance from us or uk(considering it is 1 year)
my gmat score is 710.(50, 38)
i am a b.tech graduation in mechanical GPA 7.3/10
i have worked for nearly 2 years with my dads firm logistics, packing and moving, cargo movement after finishing my graduation.
after that i moved into the banking industry as did not see myself in logistics in longer run. starting in a lower managerial postion. i have worked for 4.5 years in the banking sector with 2 promotions, now as branch manager.
i have finished my CFA(all 3 levels), and JAIIB, CAIIB certification(considered equivalent to a diploma in banking in india) while working in bank.
==>>>>also before joining the bank i was given academic training of 1 year(9 months classroom training+3 months intern in bank) and additional 1 year of distance online learning. it was called and MBA in banking but was not atpar with the standards of an MBA curiculam. it was more or less industry training for banking.
extracurriculars: i had participated in a short national social service program for educating village kids etc during collage. apart from that a few essay writing. few additional mechanical engginerring workshops.
QUESTION: i want to get into an international bank. will a MS in finanace or a MBA in finance suit me in my career.
Also the training, as part of joining the bank which was called an MBA in banking, but did not have a curriculum of the standard of an mba as i have mentioned....will that be held against me. i mean will it do bad to my overall profile???..it was a 9 month class and rest online program for training people for banking.

yes, I was awarded an mba in banking and finance. My GPA was 8.1/9.0. I did pretty well during the course.
The course was pretty nice to train someone for a starter assistent managerial position in banking. But i did not think it had a enough comprehensive curriculam, lot of subjects were missing, to be called an MBA.
Also i had got into my family business for a period of 1 year and 11 months after finishing my engineering. It is a small scale service industry into logistics, packing and moving & cargo transportation. it was more man managment and less analytical/ financial. I was inclined towards finances so i took the decision of getting into a bank and make a career in banking.
Will this 2 years of family business add good volume to my profile. My dad had an operation and was not well for around 1 year that was the prime reason for me to join the business. I moved out when my father was in fine postion and my younger brother had finished his graduation and joined the work.
Please suggest me an MBA in finance or MSfin. I wish to carry on in the banking financial sector. Will i have dfficulties moving ahead into the higher executive managment of an international bank with an MSfin??
