MS Finance as my 'FIRST MBA' [#permalink]

I am planning to do MS. Finance in 2008. As I get work experience, I further plan to pursue an MBA.

Is it true, that business schools may treat the MSF as my 'first' MBA and that they would be reluctant to grant me admission in a traditional MBA later on?

How can I overcome this problem?

MS Finance programs are generally far more specialized in finance and feature very little coverage of management/leadership. It is always possible for schools to perceive a program to be duplicative of an MBA but this is unlikely for most MS Finance programs.

So does that mean I won't face any problem if I pursue MBA in the future?

That would only help you because you have something else to bring to the table that no one else has. GO FOR IT AMIGO!!!

Well I visualize my career in the same way as you do.
This year I will study a Master In financial mangement at Erasmus Rotterdam (A top program, head to head with LBS MiF) and IÂ´m sure I will be landing a IB job after that.

I want to do my MBA in an Ivy League in three more years after some experience in the finance industry

So I think is a good career path for anyone interested in getting into the top ranks of the finance industry.
