MS Finance after MBA? [#permalink] New post 22 Mar 2011, 03:28
Is it unusual for MBA graduates to study a specialized masters (MS Finance etc..) after a couple of years of work ex?

I want to keep this option open. Considering my interest in finance/economics I might want to study finance in greater detail after my MBA.

Thank you!

That seems like a great deal of schooling for two masters degrees. Not to mention the cost to fund both of them.

I considered doing an MFE, but then decided I might as well get a PhD if I was going back to school (I already have one masters degree).

Thanks for the reply! I agree that two masters degrees will take up valuable time as well as money! I guess then getting a CFA might be a better idea. A MSc Finance (Princeton, NYU, Duke, Oxford, LBS etc...) will take 1 year. Another option can be to do a 1 year MBA then get a 1 year Masters in Finance. I guess I will have to take a call once I complete my MBA program and join the industry.

Thanks again!

I'm doing my MS in Financial Engineering after doing my MBA. Don't regret it at all. The focus you gain from specifically studying subjects in finance is truly beneficial. It's definitely a decision to make due to the costs you will incur, but if you can manage it and it really is what you want to do I would say go for it. Just make sure you pick the right program for you. Don't worry about the rankings so much but rather the location of where you want to be. I've learned most universities that offer these specific programs in finance are all great institutions. Best of luck in your endeavors.

having multiple degrees in a very closely knit subject, will not improve your income much, however if this is a self fulfilling endeavor and would make you feel proud of yourself it is a different story. if you really looking for more creditability for your resume there are far better choices ; but if you will work for yourself it would be debatable.... one thing, which is know is: being a professional student will not pay, and in the job market experience is the big decider for job recruitment.

Prior to your MBA you should have work experience. So doing a BS, then an MBA then a MS unless you want to then do a phd you are going to actually put yourself at a disadvantage. People still really prefer work experience to academics in certain fields.
