[Urgent] MS in Finance from Univeristy of Michigan-Dearborn [#permalink] New post 03 Mar 2012, 21:05
I am from Hong Kong who has worked in the banking industry for almost 5 years by now after graduating from a Hong Kong university with a Actuarial Science major.

I have recently submitted a last minute application to the University of Michigan-Deaborn, MS in Finance programme and got accepted. When I say last minute, it is really within a few days..... So now, I am struggling on whether I should accept this offer as I don't know what is the reputation of this course (and it is a bit hard to find relevant information on the web...) given current workload from my job is actually quite heavy, therefore I want to make sure I am investing both money and time in something that worth.

I will have to make a decision within next week, therefore I would like to seek all your help to advise what do you think about this course, and how does the market perceive this course.... Thanks!

I'm in the same boat as you. I also got accepted into the MS Finance program at U of Michigan-Dearborn. The way I've been thinking about the value of the degree is that although the program itself isn't well known, at least it benefits from the strong reputation of the University of Michigan. With that said, it isn't on the main campus, so it doesn't benefit from the Ross reputation and on campus recruiting isn't going to be as strong.

I'm not too worried about not getting great recruiting since I have no intentions of leaving my current employer in the near future. I'm currently trying to decide between the finance programs at Michigan and Penn State.

Indiana has an online MSF also. Might want to look into that.

Thanks that's a good idea. I had looked at it earlier in my search but dismissed it because I saw on the website that one of the courses had to be completed on campus. Today I emailed admissions for clarification and I found out that the on campus course is only a week long, which is doable for me.

What's your take on the 3 programs? Any preference?
