low gpa/MS Finance admission? [#permalink] New post 10 May 2009, 16:03
Hi folks,
A friend of mine is considering a Ms Finance but has a fairly low GPA (2.5) in biomedical and mechanical engineering from a top-US engineering school. Do you know of any programs that place less emphasis on GPA for admissions?
Thanks!

Clark MSF, Tulane's MFin, Vanderbilt's MSF, Rochester's M.S. (Business Administration). I got admitted to these thats why I am mentioning them. There are others out there but as more technical or quant oriented the program gets, the more emphasis on GPA. I have heard Urbana-Champaign doesn't emphasize on GPA much but does so on experience. Same for Boston College.
