MBA VERSUS M.FIN [#permalink] New post 19 Oct 2011, 23:47
What is the basic difference between the two programs?
Is the MBA more suitable for a reason seeking a career change and the M.Fin more suitable for an experienced person in the finance field?
Also, how about the MBA+M.Fin program that some schools offer?

Hi Anirudh,

Good to hear from you again 

After going through your profile we have already suggested you to go for MBA. M.Fin is more domain specific and MBA on the other hand is perfect for folks wanting to get into managerial position. In other words, an MBA would touch upon aspects beyond just finance.

While the ranking for Mfin is not verified, some of the top schools are:

London Business School, MIT, Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, IE. (possibly in that order)

There are plenty of second tier schools that offer the degree as well (BC, Rochester, Vanderbilt, Florida, Imperial, UCL, TCD to name a few).

For those having an inclination towards finance engineering Princeton offers specialization.

For further assistance feel free to ask us 

Masters in Finance is a "Technical" degree for those with finance experience, finance goals and a passion for finance. An MBA offers a more generalized degree that covers various aspects in business, but is geared towards general management (and consulting)
