Masters in Finance programs that are right for me [#permalink] New post 09 Nov 2011, 18:37
Hey everyone. I need some help on some masters in finance programs which are right for me.

My profile:

I attend a large state school (think SEC school)
I am a triple major in Accounting, Business Economics, and Finance and will graduate in December of 2011
My gpa is around a 3.5
My work experience consists of 2 local finance internships, 1 internship with a F100 company in financial services
I participated in the investment fund at my school
I am currently a research assistance for a finance professor
I have a few extracurrics as well
I did take the GMAT but scored low without much studying.

I would take the GMAT again but with more study time and focus put into it.

What are some good masters in finance programs for me?

Thanks.

Hi,
I have completed my Bachelors in Engineering(Information Technology) From India. However I am interested in switching domains and jumping into finance( specifically stock trading, hedge funds etc). I have taken a GMAT date and am planning to apply for MSF program in USA and Canada. I have a few questions regarding the same.

1. Is MSF the right course for me if I am looking forward to a career in stock markets?
2. Which country will be a safe choice as OPT period after the program finishes is only 3 months in USA which means I will have only three months to get a job after which I will be asked to leave. In Canada its over a year.
3. I am currently working in an IT company and no part of my profile reflects any finance background apart from the fact that I have been trading for years.
i.Is this a reason to worry before applying to universities?
ii. Are there any courses/ Certifications that can help me get a strong profile for getting into a good university?


Thanks Chinmay
