The main pluses:

1) You do not need work experience to enter most MS Finance programs

2) You get to study your field far more intensively than you would in a general MBA program

The minuses

1) You spend more time and money on schooling (but this can be moderated by attending an accelerated MBA program)

2) There is a risk of degree preclusion (but this can be moderated as well)

3) You might have to repeat some coursework in the MBA program (again, with careful selection of your portfolio you can minimize this risk)

Degree preclusion just means receiving a graduate degree that is so similar to an MBA that other business schools are unwilling to admit you because they do not want to grant you a second "MBA." Note that some business schools are willing to grant second MBAs but you usually have to justify why you need a second one.

Do you prefer an MS Finance granted by a business school?
