Hey guys,
I am currently an undergrad student. I am wondering whether to apply to Ms in Finance programs straight out of undergrad or work for 2-3 years and then apply to MBA programs.
My ultimate goal is to work in the financial sphere, more specifically, in investment banking, hedge funds, or private equity. I know that a Ms in Finance program from a top b-school can be beneficial to these goals; however, I have also heard that in order to truly succeed in these fields I will need an MBA.
So, how does it look to do an MBA after a Ms in Finance ?Is it common ?
I am considering the MS in Financial Economics at Oxford, the Master in Finance in HEC, and the corresponding programs in Warwick and St Gallen. They do not require any WE so I believe if I meet their academic requirements I will be competitive enough to get in. My question is, whether having a master in finance degree can hinder my chances of later getting accepted to top tier MBA programs
Thank you for your time.

Many people do an MSF and then work for a number of years and do an MBA. The MSF helps you break into finance without wasting years doing something you don't want to do, while waiting to be ready for an MBA.

excellent answer. i'm doing my MSF right now because an u-grad degree (unless you're from harvard, MIT etc etc) is pretty much useless.
