MS in finance or MS in my undergraduate major? [#permalink] New post 02 May 2014, 19:41
Hi all
First of all its great to be here finally,been recommended by my friend,hope it helps with my queries.
Basically my major is in Humanities but i want to pursue a career in finance.
Currently my university is offering a minor degree in finance,i want to ask if it would add anything to my resume.I have been offered at job in J.P Morgan Chase after i graduate,so i am looking to work for 2-3 years and then do a MS.
What i would like to ask if there are two profiles having the same corporate experience and one is single degree completed in 4 years time and the other is with minor in finance completed in 4.5 years,which one would have an edge?
Regards
Senior Manager

I wouldn't both with the minor. You already have a job without it. Focus on graduating strong and working and then you can decide if you want to do the masters or just go for an MBA.

I mean USF isn't one of the top programs. I would say you'll have alumni in Miami that you can hit up. I would go into this knowing that it is going to be difficult to land a top tier job. Focus on local firms or something. If you require sponsorship realize it will be even more difficult.

I'd probably study again and redo the GMAT.
