MBA Specialization [#permalink] New post 28 Dec 2013, 06:59
Hi All,
I know it might be a generic question, but could anyone please tell me is it possible to do MBA 2 years full time specialization in Finance?
I heard that first year has common subjects and we can choose the specialization subject in the second year.
Also iam unable to shortlist the colleges on the basis of Top finance B schools.
I am Mostly targeting Europe and mainly near England
My Profile:: Indian, Male, GMAT:690. 3 years experience IT.

Response appreciated.

All two year programs, at least among the top schools, will require you to complete the core curriculum (i.e., "common subjects.) At some schools, the core lasts an entire year, but at others, the core only lasts the first semester.

After you finish the core curriculum, you can take whatever electives you want, focusing on Finance. Many schools like Kellogg, Fuqua and Sloan allow you to declare concentrations.

In terms of top Finance schools in Europe, you can probably look at the FT rankings. But LBS is the obvious king of finance among b schools in England.

Almost all top universitites have common subjects in their first year curriculum and specialization courses later. As for your profile, a score of 690 on the GMAT is good to get you into top schools in Europe. But, you cannot rely on your GMAT score alone. You need to have a good undergraduate GPA and leadership roles in your work experience and extra-curriculars. If you provide these details, it will help in evaluating your profile better. Because you belong to a very competetive segment, you need to have a very good profile. You can target LSB,Rotterdam School of Management for 2 year courses. If you are interested in 1 year courses, then you can give INSEAD and IESE a try.In addition to all this, you have to work on creating a stellar application. Download the free ebook – How to get into top a business school at http://www.interviewbay.com/mba/how-to- ... -ebook.php. Also try talking to some alumni of your target schools.

Good Luck!
