is my profile good for MiF? [#permalink] New post 03 Aug 2012, 03:17
Hello everyone!

I have MBA from non-top US school and about 9 years of experience. Living in the third world country I have a very limited opportunity of joining IB or asset management and even US MBA did not quite open many holes as it was an exchange program that reqiored me to go back home for 2 years. Now I still want to give it a try and get my foot to the door of IB and asset management firms (private quity is interesting too!). And the only realistic way I see is to get into good Master in Finance program.

Any thoughts on what my chances are and any recommendations on what program would be the best fit for my situation?

Thanks a lot to everyone!

P.S. My professional experience is half in corp fin (budgeting and analysis) and half in portfolio management (short-term fixed income - very simple and risk averse).

Thanks.

Hello.
You should give some consideration to the LBS program, which is for more experienced professionals. It is not a guaranteed entry into asset management, but could help you build strengths in the areas you mentioned.

Consider submitting your CV for review to the admissions team at this link http://www.london.edu/programmes/mif/ap ... html#h8327 for an assessment from the admissions team. I am aware of at least a few students with MBAs from other schools and several years of experience who have gone through the LBS MiF for the reasons you've mentioned.
