Master in finance pre experience [#permalink] New post 10 Nov 2013, 10:03
Im 22 years old spanish student with almost my bachelor in Economics finished. I want to study a master in finance. I have no work experience (Im from Spain and labour market is **** up) but I was an Erasmus student (I went to Maastricht, the Netherlands) and also I went to LSE through their Summer School, studying Fixed Income. My GPA is somewhat low (aprox 7/10).
First target was IELTS, which I did with bandscore 7.0. Next step would be GMAT, and maybe I will take CFA in June if I don't find a job.

My target schools are:

-MSc Banking and Finance in St Gallen:
Pro: 5'5K, prestigeous school with great laboral oportunities.
Cons: living cost expenses, high GMAT

-MSc Finance and Investments in RSM
Pro:1'9k(cheap) in a great country where I have already lived
Cons: I don't know if it's well recognized outside Netherlands

Msc Finance in ESADE
Pro: In contrast with other options, I live in Barcelona so there are not additional living cost. Very well recognized in Spain.
Cons: 24k

I know that Im not genius so I would apply to LSE, OxBridge. Neither I don't want to apply to UK schools, because Im not rich and Msc Finance there are very expensive, + living cost added. Im considering other options such as Maastricht,Tilburg or Bocconi. Im late for SSE :(

What do you think? I need some other backup plans

Correct me if I'm wrong but when it comes to SSE the deadline for taking the GMAT is January 15th. You have two months to prepare and if you are not working it is absolutely possible to achieve a good level of preparation for the exam. Apart from that, I've read a lot of stories about study fee waivers on part of Bocconi, good GMAT score provided.
